Site selection

We can provide specifically designed datasets to help developers and consultants select the best onshore and offshore sites globally.

Virtual Met Mast™ datasets can offer a cheaper and more representative alternative to the traditional assessment tools by helping to perform accurate primary site evaluations in the initial stages of development without the need for on-site data.

Virtual Met Mast™ utilises data from Met Office regional-scale numerical weather prediction (NWP) models, to which adjustments are applied to account for local complexity such as the effects of local topography. It provides key wind climatology statistics in the form of a time series of wind speed and direction up to a 30-year period, for a specific site and defined height.

Additionally, we can provide bespoke analysis and advice to determine site selection and to inform design criteria in the development stage of projects, ensuring optimum performance.
