Continental Wind Partners Utilizes Triton Sonic Wind Profilers for Wind Assessment

Continental Wind Partners (CWP), a company constituted to fund the wind farm developments in Central and Eastern European countries, has acquired Triton Sonic Wind Profilers, manufactured by Second Wind, for its wind resource assessment applications.

The company has acquired eight Tritons for the purpose of utilizing its innovative remote sensing technology to quicken the development of wind farms while cutting down the chances of project uncertainty. Currently, the company is utilizing the Tritons in five locations in Eastern European countries to regulate its project financing.

The Triton system incorporates a sodar (sound detection and ranging) expertise to quantify wind velocity at higher altitudes. The system is able to reach greater heights than the earlier utilized tower based technology. The Triton measures wind velocity at the height level of a rotor hub up to 200 meters and lessens the ambiguity in annual energy production (AEP) estimates. The use of the instrument also allows outlining of a wind farm development procedures.

The company utilizes the Tritons for initial assessment of the proposed wind sites and to collect the wind data to assess whether the proposed site meets the requirement of further deeper examining with meteorological towers. The company also tries to assess the wind availability of a location by installing a Triton along with the existing meteorological tower on several locations all over the site to chart the availability of wind resources accurately and this practice is also known as micro-siting. Currently the company has saved over 100,000 of Triton data about the wind sites in Central and Eastern Europe wind locations.
