Transparency to make informed decisions
WindFarmer enables you to understand in detail what is going on in a wind farm and to make informed decisions. The models used in WindFarmer are transparent, validated and documented. This provides you with complete control and unrivalled accuracy for your wind farm design and energy yield calculations.
High quality software you can rely on
WindFarmer is advanced, tested and validated software for commercial use. WindFarmer is used by GL Garrad Hassan and by many other major clients worldwide, to design and assess many GW of wind energy capacity every year.
Benefit from our global network
WindFarmer is used globally. The software, support, documentation and training are available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Turkish – at no extra cost. WindFarmer is supported locally by GL Garrad Hassan experts who know the market and can offer you advice and training, tailored to your needs.
Wind map compatibility
WindFarmer is drag and drop compatible with GL Garrad Hassan’s wind map of the United Kingdom and Ireland.
WindFarmer supports the use of your preferred flow model
WindFarmer imports wind resource data files from a large range of flow models, including the new WAsP CFD. Advanced flow simulations can also be ordered through GL Garrad Hassan’s CFD service, operated by our CFD specialists. In complex terrain, forested terrain, or at sites where atmospheric stability is important, the result can be a significant improvement. on classical approaches.
