    HIGH-TECH WIND PROSPECTING IN POLAND

    Wind Prospect offers wind power developers in Poland easier access to Second Wind’s remote sensing technology; International renewable energy consulting firm makes Triton Sonic Wind Profilers economical and flexible in fast-growing wind energy market
    April 5, 2011 (Second Wind)

    "As Poland’s wind energy industry accelerates its new project development initiatives to meet European Union mandates and exploit the country’s promising wind resources, project developers are being offered expanded access to technology that will help drive the development process. The global renewable energy consulting firm Wind Prospect will…[use] two Second Wind Triton® Sonic Wind Profilers…to provide developers in Poland’s growing wind power market with fast, economical access to hub-height wind measurements.

    "Wind Prospect will make Second Wind’s Triton sodar system available through rental contracts…[enabling] developers to collect wind data using the wind industry’s market-leading remote sensing technology under flexible financing terms."

    "Most of the world’s leading wind developers already use Triton to measure wind resources across the full swept area of the turbine’s rotor, reducing uncertainty in hub height wind speeds and enhancing project financing terms. Wind Prospect will initially be using these two Tritons to support five wind development projects in Poland.

    "Poland has vast onshore and offshore wind resources and is doubling its wind power capacity every year. Spurred by its own economic growth and European Union renewable energy mandates, Poland is predicted to expand its wind power twentyfold by 2020…"

    "Wind Prospect gained experience with Triton from using it on international wind power projects in Europe, Australia and North America…

    "…[S]odar (sound detection and ranging) technology…[measures] wind speeds at the turbine rotor’s hub height and beyond…[to reduce] uncertainty in annual energy production (AEP) forecasts. Easy to install and capable of autonomous operation, Tritons are being used throughout the wind industry, alone or in conjunction with met towers, to streamline the wind farm development process and to improve wind farm operations…"
