Posted on 27th July 2018 in News

Following the launch of its new technology thunderstorm detection system which has significant benefits for the wind energy sector, meteorological equipment specialist Biral’s Alec Bennett has produced a technical white paper on the success of this system in detecting imminent lightning.BTD-300

Entitled ‘Warning of imminent lightning using single-site meteorological observations’, the paper discusses the effectiveness of meteorological observations made at a site to warn personnel of imminent nearby lightning.

The company’s BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detection system has the ability to detect all forms of lightning within an 83km radius, including warning of potential overhead lightning. The equipment is immune to man-made false alarms making it highly reliable in safety critical situations such as during turbine construction and maintenance.

Lightning warning using single-site observations is especially useful where access to real-time data from remote observations is not possible or cannot be guaranteed.
