3TIER has announced the addition of Canada and Alaska to its FirstLook Assessment tool, providing online access to its geographically seamless 5 km wind data set for the continental U.S. and Canada.

At the same time, 3TIER has announced a deal with GENIVAR, a Canada-based engineering firm, which 3TEIR says is the first customer to use FirstLook Assessment for exploring Canada's wind energy potential. GENIVAR signed a FirstLook Assessment bundled contract.

"With the capabilities and reliability of FirstLook, what was once a complex process is now streamlined to deliver the information our clients need to move quickly on a project," says David Baker, vice president of wind power at GENIVAR. "We look forward to using the Firstlook tool to be able to quickly estimate the wind resource potential where there is limited or no meteorological data available."

The 5 km mapping of the continental U.S. and Canada is part of 3TIER's “Remapping the World," a longer-term, global initiative launched in March when 3TIER unveiled a seamless global wind map at a 15 km resolution.
