Telvent to provide lighting safety technology for Gamesa

Gamesa has selected Telvent to provide lightning safety technology for its wind power plants in the U.S. Telvent’s technology will warn Gamesa’s wind power plant operators when lightning strikes are detected within a predefined radius, providing sufficient time for personnel to evacuate before lightning is in their immediate area.

The initial services will focus on Gamesa’s North American power plants. However, Telvent’s global weather information capabilities will allow the application to be expanded into other regions where Gamesa has operations.
