UpWind Solutions and ROMO Wind have recently entered into a strategic relationship. With the partnership, ROMO Wind’s patented iSpin technology, which measures the wind in front of the rotor, will be available for customers in the USA, Canada and Mexico for the first time.
The ROMO Wind iSpin system uses ultrasonic technology to measure wind where it first hits the turbine – directly at the spinner. Operators gather exact information on the wind conditions in front of the rotor including wind speed, yaw alignment, flow inclination, turbulence, rotor position and temperature. The iSpin solution can be packaged with VG upgrades or O&M agreements, and delivered stand alone. It can provide AEP improvements itself and also verify production improvements from other upgrades.
