Windlab Selects the Vaisala Triton to Support African Wind Development

Vaisala announced that Windlab, is using the Vaisala Triton Sonic Wind Profiler, a ground based remote sensing system, to assist with ongoing and critical site selection work in Africa. With the continent registering a boom in renewable energy deployment in a number of countries, and South Africa in particular working to reduce its dependence on coal fired power plants, developers must quickly and efficiently make key site selection decisions for development. The Vaisala Triton can be used either in locations where meteorological masts might be inappropriate or difficult to install, or used in conjunction with these masts to identify site suitability issues and gain a more detailed assessment of a project's resource potential. Tritons are also able to operate autonomously, powered in most cases by on-board solar panels, enabling them to be used in remote areas with no access to the power grid. These capabilities allow Vaisala to better assist developers and investors in unlocking growth in emerging markets, and gain improved perspectives on project risk. Having previous experience using the Vaisala Triton in its global operations, Windlab clearly understood the strategic advantage of deploying them in a market like South Africa. Several potential sites were initially identified in the region through early stage wind modeling. However, in order to finalize development and investment decisions, it was necessary to characterize the wind profile of these sites in more detail, gather wind measurement data over large distances, and monitor multiple locations simultaneously. For this the Tritons were invaluable.

Vaisala Signs Contract for Six Weather Radars

Vaisala has signed a contract to deliver six weather radars to its long-term customer in Asia Pacific. The contract includes Dual Polarization Doppler Weather Radars WRK200 equipped with klystron transmitter technology, installation services and training. The deliveries start in 2016 and will be completed by the end of 2018. The value of the deal is EUR 8.9 million. A weather radar is the single most effective device to observe rainfall. A dual-polarized radar distinguishes between different types of rainfall and between rain and non-meteorological objects, such as birds and insects. It also measures the intensity of precipitation more accurately, providing valuable information for local short-term weather forecasts, for example.
