Presentation of new SODAR system AQ510 windfinder at the EWEA in Barcelona
Ammonit Measurement GmbH, leading supplier of top level measurement equipment for the wind and solar industry, enters global sales partnership with AQSystem, manufacturer of the best SODAR(1) systems on the market. At the EWEA (10 – 13 March 2014) in Barcelona, Ammonit will introduce the latest in SODAR development, the AQ510 windfinder.
AQ510 windfinder measures wind conditions up to a height of 200m with a resolution of 5m. Hence the wind profile for the whole rotor blade area of a wind turbine can be calculated. With more than 97% at 100m and more than 92% at 150m, the SODAR system offers very high data availability. In order to ensure high data quality, AQ510 windfinder is validated against an IEC 61400-12-1 compliant met mast.
The SODAR system can be installed as a supplement to a met mast in a measurement campaign for wind site assessment as well as to monitor the performance of wind turbines. AQ510 windfinder is a mobile system, which operates at only 15W. Due to the advanced design of AQ510 windfinder neither snow nor rain influences data quality and availability.
Please visit us at the EWEA in Barcelona on our stand 7B53 to learn more about our partnership with AQSystem and the new AQ510 windfinder.
