After a 3 month trial, MetOcean Solutions has been awarded a contract to
supply wind forecasts to a European wind farm.
The forecast system relies on high resolution atmospheric modelling together with statistical post-processing from data being assimilated from measured wind. There had been significant modelling, process testing efforts to find the correct balance between physical and statistical modelling for this wind farm, which has led
to a very competitive solution. This enables the wind farm operator to maximise
the return on investment from the wind farm.
