Wind & Site,
Vortex web-based portfolio has been designed to cost-effectively help you answering some key questions
Which region should I focus my efforts on?
At the start of development MAP helps you by a zooming sequence of decisions.
Where should I install a met mast?
Where and which Class should my turbines be?
While measuring FARM helps you designing your wind farm and selecting your turbines.
How profitable will my wind farm be?
Once measurement are available SERIES makes your measurements bankable by long-term extrapolation.
FREE 9 km resolution global wind resource map.
FREE 6 months time series.
FREE topography and roughness maps.
Thanks to Vortex exclusive WAsP Wind Atlas export feature, MAPS can be refined to any resolution making them a all-in-one tool for prospecting purposes.
Vortex Mast has been designed to help you in the important decision of placing a real met. mast on the field.
All what you need for wind-farm design and turbine class selection: long-term, high-resolution temperature, mean wind, extreme wind (Vref) and turbulence maps.
Once you have enough local measurements at your potential wind farm site it is time for the serious decisions: MCP for long-term extrapolation is one of them.
Probably the most measurement-like set of synthetic wind time series currently available on the market. 1 full year, 10′ averages, 3” standard deviation.
Valuable data on extreme wind speed events that may affect wind farms design, cost and lifetime, with the possibility of enhancing the model results through a specific calibration.
Vortex BLOCKS is a GIS file, a WRG file, a TAB file, and it is a sub-hourly time series at each grid point. All of them can be obtained by filtering through different variables such as time of day, season, or stability.
Vortex Icing will be of invaluable help when designing wind farms in cold climates. Do not leave it until it is too late to experience production losses due to ice accretion on blades.
