Second Wind and Triton
Trust Triton for bankable, hub height wind data
The industry now recognizes that reducing uncertainty in AEP forecasts requires measurements across the full rotor sweep of a turbine. Leading consulting firms accept well-validated sodar data as part of a bankable wind study. Adding Triton data to 60-meter or 80-meter tower data meets the industry's current requirements while reducing the uncertainty of a wind resource assessment and enabling better project design.
Trust Triton for continuous, unattended operation
Triton's ultra-low power requirement (7 Watts for a standard Triton) and rugged construction allows it to be deployed in remote, non-powered locations -- just like a met tower.
Triton operates continuously and sends wind data every 10 minutes to your secure SkyServe® web portal. No babysitting required!
Trust Triton for ease of installation and redeployment
Triton's ease of installation allows you to start your wind measurement project immediately. No waiting until the weather is just right. In most cases, Triton is up and running within a few hours of delivery.
Once you have completed one wind measurement campaign, your Triton can be moved to a new location to begin a new study. A Triton used in a wind resource assessment study can be deployed to aid in micrositing and later used for power curve testing or to monitor the wind resource on a working wind farm.

Trust Triton for industry-leading up-time
Triton's operational up-time is greater than 95 percent based on more than 250 units sold since April 2008.
Triton's robust design, rugged construction, and low power requirements all contribute to Triton's stellar performance over nearly 2 million hours of operation. Second Wind's renowned team of support technicians monitor the fleet of Tritons through SkyServe and act quickly to alert customers whenever trouble-shooting is needed.
