Andrie Specialized to Deploy WindSentinel at Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake (USA)


Andrie Specialized will be deploying the WindSentinel at various locations throughout Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake.

The WindSentinel will be used to help conduct a comprehensive Great Lakes wind assessment review that features offshore wind assessment and related environmental studies on Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake. The buoy will provide near real-time wind data at six heights up to 485 feet and allow MAREC to gain a better understanding of offshore wind energy, as well as other physical, biological and environmental conditions on the Great Lakes.

This is the first WindSentinel to be deployed in the world. The research is a collaborative effort led by Grand Valley State University and the University of Michigan.
