Wind is one of the biggest contributors to construction downtime, particularly with operations at height. Using an anemometer and data logger to accurately measure wind speed will ensure you have the exact information needed to improve your operations site and provide evidence for weather delays.
WINDCRANE enables anyone involved in the project to see live, historical and forecast wind speed data directly from the height of a specific crane or location.
Accurate wind data enhances real-time crane planning and safety, productive lift scheduling, proficient operations management and provides a reliable reporting system for construction cranes.
More than ever, contractors and developers need to anticipate the impact of day to day weather and climate change on their operations.
Windcrane is an IoT based wind monitoring system which records wind speed from an exact location. Made especially for cranes, construction, offshore rigs, outdoor events, hoists, research and academia
Your wind monitoring data is available 24/7 via any internet connected device and via the desktop dashboard fleet.windcrane.com.
Get the Windcrane app to start monitoring your wind remotely.
Strong winds can swing suspended loads out of balance and radius, making the crane unstable. This has a major impact on site safety and if the operator feels that he cannot maintain control of the load, it should not be lifted.
To manage risk, the first step is knowing the exact wind conditions at all times. Using LIVE wind speed data which is accessible to everyone involved in the project you can manage your site safety accordingly.
Based on crane specifications, operators and project managers can then decide if a lift can proceed safely.
Wind is the biggest cause of delays and downtime on a construction site and is becoming more erratic every year. Keep your colleagues and customers updated with reliable wind speed information.
Justify winded off periods due to harsh weather and avoid project penalties and disputes over delays.
Severe weather conditions can cause unexpected delays and add costs to major construction projects, having an accurate FORECAST allows you to make precise informed decisions to improve the productivity of your project and construction site.
Instead of using a forecast from a nearby weather station, get an exact wind forecast which uses the location of your Windcrane device. With the extra feature to calculate the wind speed at the precise height of your crane you will have one of most accurate wind forecasts on the market.
