203m Validation Tower

Sentrex Wind Services Inc. offers validation (verification) services for your remote sensing devices (including AQ510, Triton, WindCube, and ZephIR) against our Fully IEC 61400-12-1:2017 compliant site & tower. The tower is equipped with first-class anemometry every 40m at 5 levels.

Validation Tower Features

  • For RSDs to be used in turbine power performance testing or wind resource assessment

  • RSD validation (verification) services

  • On-site power available

  • IEC compliant site

  • IEC compliant tower 

  • Measure to a full height range of RSDs

  • Measure to heights typical of present turbine rotor diameters

  • Validation (verification) of remote sensing devices is intended to determine the level of agreement between an RSD’s measured wind speeds and a validation tower’s measured wind speeds.

  • The validation procedure is carried out in accordance with international standards and includes correlations and estimates of uncertainties. The process may take a number of weeks, and the user is provided with a validation report showing comparisons and associated uncertainties at up to five heights: 40m, 80m, 120m, 160m, and 200m.

  • In some cases, clients may request a non-IEC check on the unit prior to or
    post-measurement campaign, to establish that the unit is working according
    to the manufacturer’s specifications or to the client’s specified tolerances.
