PROBLEM: Lightning and Wind Dangers

The majority of wind farms around the world are located in lightning-prone areas, looming hundreds of feet above flat, usually barren, terrain making them highly vulnerable to severe weather. Beyond causing costly downtime, extreme weather events pose a deadly threat to crews working within the nacelle and in the immediate vicinity of towers.

SOLUTION: Optimize Operations and Protect Crews

To mitigate these risks, wind farm operators turn to advanced weather tools to warn them of the approach of the two most dangerous types of weather events - lightning and high winds. Get real-time lightning alerts sent directly to your technicians. Inspect and repair blades before lightning damage leads to more costly repair or replacement. Plan maintenance accordingly with hub height wind forecasts.
