Wind Speed Measurement and Site Assessment

Home / Products / Wind Energy / Wind Speed Measurement and Site Assessment

Wind turbines use anemometers to control alignment and monitor the available wind energy. Biral can provide a range of anemometers suitable for use on turbines, from simple cup and vane devices through to more sophisticated ultrasonic sensors.

Before a wind turbine or wind farm is installed an assessment of the site is necessary to ensure the available wind resources will repay the installation and operating costs. Biral can provide First Class cup and vane IEC 61400-12-1 class 0.5 compliant anemometers for use on masts. Additionally Biral offers SODAR systems that can provide real time 3-dimensional wind profiles in the height range of interest for site assessment.
