A crane is essentially a metallic structure, and like all structures it has elements and joints that can only tolerate certain force before they fail. Of course, the forces required to cause failure are extremely high for a metallic crane, which is built to hoist equipment weighing many tonnes. Continue reading “How Does Wind Turbulence Affect Cranes?”
Does your current weather monitoring solution have the right features to measure wind speed and direction effectively?
Whilst wind data is only reliable if the measurement system is accurate, weather monitoring is often performed in locations with limited access to communication networks. Continue reading “5 Reasons to Measure Wind Speed and Direction Using a Smart GSM System”
Do you work in a remote environment? Monitoring the weather in harsh or hazardous conditions can be a challenge, especially on remote sites where there is limited power available. Wind monitoring is very demanding in terms of data processing requirements. Continue reading “How to Choose the Best System for Remote Weather Monitoring”
In recent years, the often unpredictable nature of extreme weather events means that a weather monitoring system performs a very important function. Whilst weather forecasts provide a general idea of what to expect, a weather monitoring system, like WINDCRANE, can deliver accurate live data that is location-specific. Continue reading “The Role of Weather Monitoring Systems During Extreme Weather Events”
The weather affects nearly all commercial, industrial and institutional sectors, but those operating outdoors are especially vulnerable to harsh weather. The wind has the potential to blow around debris and emissions from landfill sites, recycling facilities, and other waste management operations. Continue reading “Weather Monitoring in Waste Management Applications”
Weather monitoring systems are available in many configurations, but what makes WINDCRANE different is the underlying technology.
Modern organisations operate across vast geographic distances and as a result, have large volumes of weather data to manage. Continue reading “Logic Energy: The Experts Behind WINDCRANE”
Do you face weather hazards in the construction industry on a regular basis? The environmental impact of greenhouse gases has made extreme weather more common and consequently, workers in the construction industry are more vulnerable to sudden weather events. Continue reading “5 Ways to Minimise the Threat of Weather Hazards in Construction”
There are many times in industry when knowing how to measure wind direction is useful. It is a key element of safety in aviation, boating and winter sports, and must also be considered when designing structures, both permanent and temporary. Continue reading “How to Measure Wind Direction”

Safer Cranes and Safe from Claims
Anyone who works in the construction industry knows that working in severe weather can be dangerous. High winds are one of the worst culprits – they can constitute such a risk that work is often stopped temporarily. This can lead to delays and extra expenses for the project as a whole. Continue reading “Safer Cranes and Safe from Claims”
One of the key considerations when assessing the quality of an anemometer is accuracy. If workforce safety is of crucial importance to your day-to-day work, it’s important to know that wind measurement will give you the accurate and reliable data you need to make critical decisions.
