Vortex technology is a 15 years old online atmospheric modeling service addressed to the technical wind and site department. It provides a global estimation of wind at places or periods. Vortex technology reverses the traditional wind modeling processes by downscaling wind patterns over large areas to your points of interest using a supercomputer cluster. They incorporate client reviews to help grow their business. Vortex technology business model includes innovativeness—for instance, remote computing. Clients can obtain wind data with Vortex with just a couple of clicks. Thus they do not need to buy sophisticated hardware, be modeling experts or go through a consultancy process.
- They have experienced personnel’s
Vortex technology is designed by professionals and for professionals. In 2007 an online assessment service was developed by experts and professionals in the renewable energy business and meteorological modeling. They ensure a thorough awareness of the industry’s information needs and demands and the solutions provided by mesoscale modeling technology. It enables wind farm developers to supplement wind measuring towers at potential sites to analyze wind speeds (including extremes), lowering wind farm development costs and timelines. The experienced personnel ensures that clients are well served, and products can get to clients within a short period thus, proving their efficiency.
- Vortex technology is fast and more efficient.
Vortex technology is an online-based model for assessing wind at places and periods. Thus, it is a digital platform making it fast and more efficient. It only requires few clicks, and products are delivered to the clients’ software within 24 hours. It is efficient as one does not have to buy sophisticated hardware, be a modeling expert, or go through a slow and expensive consultancy process to obtain data. Also, it is fast as the technology produces far more robust results than traditional software while also being far faster (and less expensive) than a standard consulting procedure, thus making it convenient
- It maintains accuracy.
Vortex model can be used when the wind measurements are not yet accessible and still be accurate. According to the company CEO, he believes that Wind patterns in the real world are highly complicated, and current computer models are often incapable of simulating them. However, Vortex’s results are accurate enough for clients to find them helpful. This can be proved from different cross-checks around the world that resulted as; the mean absolute error (MAE) for mean wind speed is 0.37 m/s (5.6%), and the MAE for extremes is 2.65 m/s (7.4%). Also, the vortex interface provides great resolutions necessary in making more accurate decisions. Thus, the vortex model guarantees accuracy in wind obtaining data.
- 4. It is cost-effective
The vortex model is cost-effective. Considering the number of decisions and information required during obtaining wind data for wind farm development a need for a cost-effective format is necessary. Vortex provides Vortex Globe that is free of charge that ids in decision making. Also, it aids clients in ordering and ensuring products are delivered within hours, thus making it efficient and cost-effective, unlike other convenient models.
