Second Wind, Dulas partner on wind power measurement systems
Through the new partnership, U.K.-based wind developers and wind farm operators will be able to quickly install the wind measurement systems that are vital in the development and operation of wind farms
Somerville, Mass., March 27, 2012 — Second Wind, a provider of wind measurement technology, software and services, announced an expanded relationship with Dulas, a U.K.-based renewable energy services firms, designed to offer the U.K.'s wind industry a full range of wind power measurement technologies and turnkey field services.
Through the new partnership, U.K.-based wind developers and wind farm operators — both large and small — will be able to quickly install the wind measurement systems that are vital in the development and operation of wind farms.
The firm now will sell, rent, and service Second Wind's Triton Sonic Wind Profiler, the global wind industry's leading remote sensing system. Dulas will also offer Second Wind's Noma 2 Wind Data Logger and met mast-based wind sensors in addition to the suite of monitoring equipment they already sell and service.
The Triton adds value to Dulas' met mast solution by measuring wind conditions through the full blade sweep of today's largest wind turbines. This high-height data reduces the uncertainty that is introduced by extrapolating from a shorter met mast.
Second Wind's SkyServe Wind Data Service brings wind measurements from the Triton together with tower-based measurements on a secure web-based dashboard, allowing wind data to be accessed in real time, compared and securely archived.
Based in Wales, Dulas — which has been offering Triton rentals for a year — decided to expand its relationship with Second Wind to offer its customers a greater selection of tools and technologies for wind measurement projects.
