Second Wind ups presence Down Under

Second Wind, a Somerville company that develops wind measurement systems for such businesses as wind farms, said its presence in the Australian and New Zealand wind energy markets more than doubled in 2010.

Developers in those countries bought more of the company’s Triton Sonic Wind Profilers and used the company’s SkyServe satellite wind data service to view and analyze wind information, Second Wind said in a press release. The Triton is a remote sensing system that uses sound detection and ranging technology to measure wind in the areas that most affect a wind turbine’s performance. 

Second Wind’s press release noted that the Australian wind power sector has grown by an average of 30 percent from year to year over the past decade.
