The project was developed by Vestas Technology’s R&D division and uses both global databases and the sensors on the company’s turbines around the world. The forecast models are run and maintained by meteorologists at Vestas Plant Siting and Forecasting.

The app is only available for the iPhone, iTouch and iPad. However, versions for the Android and Windows Mobile operating systems are in the pipeline.

Speaking about the decision to launch the project and give the app away for free, Lars Chr. Christensen, VP, Plant Siting and Forecasting, Vestas Technology R&D said: "It’s pretty simple.

"This app gives extremely useful information for the end-user and at the same time we can promote wind."
