The marketing-leading software for importing, QCing, and analyzing wind resource data collected at wind project sites, and for preparing the data for use in wind flow and plant design software.
The industry’s most advanced software for creating and optimizing turbine layouts, designing and costing roads and cabling, performing energy estimates, and conducting ancillary analyses that may be needed for project implementation and planning such as shadow flicker and noise analysis.
Additionally, with the Wind Developer Suite, we offer complimentary consulting time so that customers can receive guidance from our experts to make the best use of the software.
