Second Wind, a leading provider of wind measurement technology, software and services, today announced the introduction of a suite of wind farm operations services based on the company's Triton® Sonic Wind Profiler and SkyServe® Wind Data Service. Triton, a remote sensing system using sodar technology to provide wind measurements across the turbine rotor sweep, and SkyServe, a cloud-based data delivery tool, have already been widely adopted by wind farm developers for use in wind resource assessment.

A well-qualified remote sensing system, such as the Triton, can be extremely valuable in assessing wind farm performance. Measuring the vertical structure of the wind profile and relating it to turbine efficiencies goes a long way in explaining varying production patterns. -- Matt Hendrickson, 3TIER
