More data, more analysis, less risk Siting is of crucial importance in the total cost of energy over the full operating lifecycle of a wind power plant. Siting has to be taken into account when calculating the overall costs of harvesting the wind, including wear and tear on the turbines, and achieving the highest possible return on your investment in wind power. With SiteHunt®, Vestas can give unique insight into critical meteorological parameters relating to operating costs, ensuring that you benefit from a holistic cost-of-energy approach that increases your business case certainty. Reducing time to market A time to market reduction using SiteHunt® is achieved through desk-based analysis which can shorten your reaction time by prioritising sites through long term climatic data analysis, helping to zoom in on the sites that fits the most desirable characteristics. With the SiteHunt® analysis in hand, these studies can expedite the first round site selection process by more quickly identifying the most attractive site areas and rapidly designing an appropriate measurement campaign. Particularly in regions where there are not many existing wind power plants or detailed wind resource maps, the time savings are expected to be on the high end.
