Second Wind, in Partnership With Beijing New Energy Technology Co., Launches Its

Triton Wind Profiler in the World's Largest Wind Energy Market


BEIJING, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --



         First appearance at China's foremost wind power exhibition will

give the Triton remote wind sensor higher visibility in major international

                                 wind market


    Second Wind is giving wind project developers in China the opportunity to

use the wind energy industry's leading remote sensing system by launching the

Triton Sonic Wind Profiler at this week's China Wind Power 2010

(http://www.chinawind.org.cn/home.htm) conference and exhibition in Beijing.


    Second Wind is already a well-recognized name in China because of the

success of the company's distributor, Beijing New Energy Technology Co. Since

2000, more than 1,000 Nomad data loggers

(http://www.secondwind.com/Nomad/Nomad-2-Wind-Data-Logger.html) and a far

larger number of anemometers and wind vanes have been sold into the Chinese

market. Aiming for similar success with Triton, Beijing New Energy Technology

Co. will be displaying a Triton in China for the first time at China Wind

Power 2010, as well as hosting a Technical Workshop to discuss Triton

technology and applications. Second Wind's CTO and co-founder Walter Sass,

Vice President of Sales Peter Gibson, General Manager Susan Giordano, and

Triton Product Manager Chris Babcock will attend the events.


    "With a growth rate of over 100% per year, China is one of the world's

most important wind power markets, both in development potential and

technology innovation. Any company that expects to be a serious player in the

international wind power market needs a substantial presence in China," said

Peter Gibson, Second Wind's vice president of sales. "We have a very

effective partner in Michael Hu and his professional team at Beijing New

Energy Technology Co. and we know them to be a first-class partner. With

their effective sales, installation and field service support, we're

confident Chinese wind power companies will adopt Triton as eagerly as their

counterparts already have in 17 other countries."


    Beijing New Energy Technology Co. will sell, install and service Tritons

throughout China. Chinese customers will monitor Tritons remotely through

Second Wind's SkyServe Web-based data service using GPRS, a service of

locally available GSM cellular networks.


    Triton is a ground-based remote sensing system that uses sodar (sound

detection and ranging) technology to measure wind up to 200 meters, above the

140-meter blade tip height of current utility-scale wind turbines. Designed

for wind energy applications including wind resource assessment, micro-siting

of wind turbines, and ongoing monitoring of wind conditions on working wind

farms, Triton has been in commercial use since April 2008 and is the wind

power industry's market-leading remote sensing system.


    The Triton unit will be on display at the China Wind Power conference at

booth number EC16, where Walter Sass, Second Wind CTO and co-founder will

present a paper on Triton. An invitation-only workshop is planned for the

previous day and will focus on how to use Triton data in wind assessments.

Following the conference, the Triton will be installed at a HydroChina wind

power site near Zhangbei, approximately 300km northwest of Beijing, to

commence a three-month independently verified performance validation study.
