How our patented, on-board sensor is set to revolutionize the wind industry.
The renewable energy industry has seen incredible advancements in recent years, with wind power playing a significant role in the push towards sustainability. At the heart of these advancements is the need for accurate wind measurement data to optimize energy production, reduce costs, and enhance the efficiency of wind farms. We are proud to announce that our globally patented Windborne sensor has reached an extraordinary milestone that stands to revolutionize the renewable energy industry: achieving first-class wind measurement instrument status.
After undergoing rigorous testing at WindGuard, a renowned accredited measurement facility in Germany, Windborne has demonstrated unparalleled scale and remarkable accuracy in measuring wind speed and direction. This puts Windborne in the same league as met masts and Lidar – but with a unique advantage: Windborne can fly.
This groundbreaking achievement means that Windborne, being attached to a drone, enables wind farm owners and operators to obtain precise wind measurements across their entire facility at an unmatched scale. This level of accuracy and coverage has never been seen before, making it a game changer for the renewable energy industry.
What would happen if a Met Mast & LiDAR took flight?
To give you an idea of the magnitude of this accomplishment, imagine if a met mast or Lidar suddenly sprouted wings and flew around the wind farm. That's essentially what Windborne does – it takes the accuracy of traditional wind measurement instruments and brings it to new heights, quite literally.
R2 = 1.000
R2 = 0.9998
WindGuard, the accredited measurement facility that conducted the testing, had this to say about Windborne's performance:
"It’s amazing how an instrument that is airborne can be as accurate as one that is entirely static. This measures up to the finest measurement systems in wind power.”
As the renewable energy industry continues to grow, accurate wind measurement data is crucial for optimizing energy production and pushing the boundaries of sustainability. Windborne's unparalleled scale and remarkable accuracy have the potential to revolutionize the wind power industry, making it more efficient and effective than ever before. This is a major milestone not only for our team but also for the future of renewable energy as a whole.
