We love the WINDCRANE system, so much better than what we have used previously.
S. GIBSON / Operations Manager
We use Windcrane because it has the capability of equipment that meets our needs - for reliable use in remote locations anywhere in the World.
The 3G connection, recording of information on a central server and ability to access via PC or mobile device anywhere in the world is very important for us in terms of monitoring our tower structures and cable camera systems at winter and summer sporting events.
The ability to use solar energy to power systems enables use in very remote locations.
We use the WINDCRANE systems for basic safety monitoring of our tower structures from our UK base – the main role.
Also for local operational information when the cable camera systems are installed – live monitoring of wind speed and temperature at the tower site for example.
We also use the systems on other temporary event structures where wind speed is a major safety factor.

Having worked at large-scale public venues such as Wembley Stadium, Twickenham Stadium and others, we can reassure our clients that we are capable of delivering the wind management plan and tightly control any wind related risks.
It sets us apart from our competitors.
ROY STRICKLAND / Managing Director
We are very satisfied with your product.
S. GÜRSU / Operations Director
The WINDCRANE mini brings reassurance and peace of mind not only to us as the artists but also to our clients. The online monitoring and the app makes it easy for us to give access to the data to the people who need it. Production mangers for the event, on-site maintenance teams and the client's themselves can check the windspeed with a click of a button no matter where they are located. This ensure we all can react quickly if needed. Our requirements were simple, our team and customers needed to know what the wind speed was right now. Windcrane delivered it.
CHESNEY ROBINSON / Artist
Three months and they haven't skipped a beat. We are harvesting data from these and other monitors right now and these are honestly the least bothersome of all of them, and your website records with no data glitches over time.
WindCrane has been a significant useful addition to HTC Wolffkran and, with over one hundred of these recorders in our hire fleet, we continue to look for additional benefits to provide to our valued customer base.
Again we express our gratitude for all the support you have given us.
SERGIO GALLEGUILLOS / Project Manager
We are using Windcrane Max unit with a solar battery charger on the top of wind turbines at a height approx. 135 m. We need to be able to monitor wind speed and direction on the site, until we have grid power on sites. The units are very reliable. As far as data, the app and the website are very intuitive and pretty easy to use and set up.
Matthew Jones / Manager, Construction
HERKULES - POLSKA
The systems are working great. It is a great help, both for us and for our customers, who are as satisfied with the operation of the system as we are.
Grzegorz Knapiński / Manager
Windcrane, for me, as being in charge of all the lifting operations, and also, controlling and programming future lifting procedures, is a big asset. I can make adjustments and also, with the help of your forecast report, I can decide whether to proceed with the cranes bookings.
Constantin Pascarus/ Appointed Person
Windcrane Max system is working as we hoped. We got all the information we needed for our snowmaking system. We had very cold condition with wind and snow, but it worked very well. Also the pv panel works very well.
Michael Huber/ Manager
Windcrane is an excellent tool on gathering information on high wind risks days, planning lifting operations and obtaining accurate instant notifications.
Anthony James/ Lead Appointed Person
The purpose of the investment of Windcrane Max some years ago was to get real-time wind speed data to log peak at the point of damage to EWI, thereby informing any insurance claim or litigation. However it also has a great use case in terms of H&S and other planning.
Colin Reid/ Carbon reduction and sustainability Manager
Windcrane anemometer is standard equipment on any tower crane supplied to the project. We have weather stations all across the project that link into AI (artificial intelligence) using Windcrane data will further enhance the applications weather predictions giving us more clarity to plan works around high level weather events. This wind data is of great value to our work, and most importantly it ensures that we do not put our staff at risk.
David Hall / Lifting Manager
Barfoots would like to explore a possibility of installation of wind turbines on sites. I’m exited to see the wealth of data Barfoots can use for the project – your kit and service is brilliant!
