Site-specific, hub-height wind prediction tool specifically designed for wind farm developers and consultants.
Virtual Met Mast™ can help wind farm developers and wind farm consultants select the best onshore and offshore wind farm sites globally.
It provides key wind climatology statistics including mean wind speed, wind direction, exceedance values, air density, wind shear and turbulence intensity, which are demonstrated in our sample report (PDF, 1 MB) .
Virtual Met Mast Plus™ is an enhanced option of Virtual Met Mast™. It combines Virtual Met Mast™ wind estimates with on-site mast observations to provide revised wind statistics at higher levels of confidence.

Verifying the accuracy of Virtual Met Mast™
To further verify the accuracy of Virtual Met Mast™, we approached turbine distributor Aeolus Power (Wind-Energy) Limited to request wind speed SCADA data captured by their nacelle-mounted anemometers and compatred this with Virtual Met Mast™ at each Endurance turbine location and hub height across 41 sites.

Temporis Wind, a developer, funder and operator of single wind turbine projects, needed to provide accurate, reliable and fast site assessments to its customers. They commissioned us to complete VMM reports (initially just at site screening level) for over 200 potential sites. This enabled Temporis Wind to complete orders for wind turbines in 2012 from several manufacturers and saved Temporis Wind both critical time and money.
