St. Paul, Minn.-based WindLogics has expanded its services to the wind power industry to include a new Viewpoint Discovery Study for preliminary site evaluation and Visionpoint Operational Assessment for wind plant performance review.

WindLogics has made its name in the wind industry by providing expert advice throughout the study-finance-operate continuum, and we're pleased to offer these new services to the industry,” says Larry Sinesio, vice president of sales and marketing for WindLogics.

The Discovery Study is a customized desktop analysis that provides an initial examination of local terrain, meteorology and wind characteristics along with long-term wind analysis. The study integrates both existing customer-provided information and publicly available wind data to deliver a report tailored to project needs.

“The study is ideal for customers examining a specific area of interest and requiring more site analysis than provided by commonly available maps or broader prospecting studies,” Sinesio says.

The Visionpoint Operational Assessment provides a detailed analysis of wind variability as a component of wind plant performance for a specific period of time. Employing short-term meteorological data, long-term weather archives and regional METAR data, the analysis thoroughly examines wind variability and its impact on capacity factor and power production.

“It’s no secret the wind industry is seeing performance outside original expectations,” Sinesio says. “We’re glad we have the data and expertise to study this industry concern and provide some answers, so owners and financiers can make informed decisions.”
