Pau (France) and Busdorf (Germany) (renewablepress) - METEORAGE, a global specialist in thunderstorm & lightning detection and decision support services, has joined forces with RECASE, a German engineering company specialized in on- and offshore Wind-Energy-Technology, to reduce lightning-related risks.

METEORAGE and RECASE have signed an agreement to strengthen the use of solutions dedicated to Wind energy in Germany, ensuring that users benefit from cutting-edge technology built upon proven global expertise and the most accurate data available.

Spherical Events are one significant environmental risk facing the wind industry. This collaboration aims to provide German wind energy players with the ability to support all the stages in the life of a wind farm - from evaluation, construction, O&M through repowering - for proactive lightning risk management.

Mr. Marco Hansen, Vice President of Service Engineering at RECASE, highlights this collaboration's impact on their customers experience:
“From our experience, we know that WTGs are frequently struck by lightning and that the resulting damage or faults are not always recognized to be causes by such an event.
Furthermore, the lightning protection system can be impaired or pre-damaged by frequent lightning events; if this remains unrecognized, there is an increased risk of lightning-related damage to the WTG.
The use of METEORAGE data makes it easier to recognize the frequency and causality of lightning events and thus enables appropriate measures to be taken.”

The partnership will allow METEORAGE and RECASE to better serve the innovative and high-growth sector of Wind energy.

"Lightning is a main threat to wind farms. The mission of METEORAGE is to mitigate these risks, and we are very proud to launch this partnership with RECASE, a highly recognized company, with whom we share this commitment to deliver decision-making tools to save lives and properties”, concludes METEORAGE’s President, Mr. Dominique Lapeyre de Chavardès, on the significance of this initiative for both players.
