Wind generation Forecast

Our precision wind generation forecasts and alerting keep you one step ahead

Do you want a solution that makes scheduling maintenance on your wind farm easier?

Weatherzone Business delivers industry-leading weather and power generation forecasting and real-time alerting to inform your critical decision-making. Together we can keep your staff and assets safe, and efficiency high.

With lightning strikes, severe weather, flood and fire posing risk to wind farms across Australia, we have tailored solutions that can significantly improve your oversight and response.

Weatherzone’s Total Lightning Network comprises of regional and global sensors to detect intra-cloud (IC) and cloud-to-ground lightning (CG) strikes within your proximity thresholds. It provides unparalled detection accuracy (<200m) and real-time lightning alerts to any device across your operations team.

Your customizable Energyzone interface and Weatherguard app will provide access to the Total Lightning Network as well as centralized data from state and territory fire agencies, the Bureau of Meteorology, and over 30 national and international private and state organisations. This enables full situational awareness of weather conditions and fire risk, as well as severe weather alerting via text, email and phone call, so your staff can respond effectively when required.

The powerful generation forecasting solution

Weatherzone’s Opticast Renewable Wind (RW) takes on-site observations and SCADA data, blending them with multiple NWP models to generate consensus forecast. Utilising an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) and statistical error estimation techniques, it vastly improves estimates of power generation and delivers precise hub height forecasting.

Meticulous forecasting to reduce your farm’s exposure to penalties.
