Second Wind names Clean Electric Israel as authorized reseller in Israel and CIS

Increased access to wind measurement technology will benefit the growing wind development market in Israel, former Soviet republics

NEWTON, MASS. AND PETAH-TIQWA ISRAEL, March 20, 2013 -- Second Wind, a leading developer of wind measurement technology for the world's wind power industry, today announced that it is partnering with one of the leaders in the Israeli wind industry to offer wind measurement equipment in Israel and the CIS countries. Clean Electric Israel, a Petah-Tiqwa-based company providing wind assessment and forecasting services, will offer Second Wind's Nomad® 2 Wind Data Loggers and meteorological sensors to its regional clients.

The agreement allows Second Wind to more efficiently service the nascent wind development market in Israel. A newly favorable regulatory environment has created demand for higher-height wind measurements, says Clean Electric CEO Evgeny Kosharovsky. "With Second Wind's line of flexible, practical wind sensors and the Nomad 2 Wind Data logger, we can offer our clients a complete wind measurement solution," Kosharovsky adds.
"We're excited to partner with Clean Electric Israel," says Second Wind's VP Sales, Lee Alnes. "Mr. Kosharovsky has been a leader in the Israeli wind industry, and has a strong sales background in the CIS countries. His experience and connections in both areas will help us tremendously. Clean Electric's team of qualified installers, technicians, and field service engineers — along with the company's meteorological expertise — will offer a one-stop solution for wind developers who purchase Second Wind's equipment."
Founded in 2009, Clean Electric is a reseller for wind assessment and forecasting leader 3TIER. 3TIER recently completed the first wind map of Israel, giving developers access to data higher than 15 meters for the first time. Now, the demand for higher height data will be met by a combination of remote sensing technologies — such as Second Wind's Triton Sonic Wind Profiler sodar and Pentalum's SpiDAR LiDAR — and taller meteorological towers.
"Second Wind's systems allow wind developers to easily measure higher height data with met towers," says Kosharovsky. "The company's Nomad 2 Wind Data Logger accepts data from all of the wind industry's popular anemometers and wind vanes, with no modifications necessary. This is important as most wind resource assessments require more than one kind of anemometer. Second Wind has an excellent reputation during more than 30 years of serving the global wind energy industry, and Clean Electric is looking forward to a long and productive partnership."
Clean Electric will be exhibiting with 3TIER at CISWIND-2013 from March 28-29 in Kiev, Ukraine. Sponsored by the Innovative Business Centre, the Ukrainian Wind Energy Association, and the Market Association of Alternative Fuel and Enegy of Ukraine, this event will bring together investors, developers, manufacturers, and policymakers to give a fresh impetus to wind development in the CIS and Eastern Europe.
