Introducing Wind AXIOM

Wind AXIOM is a new insight platform that helps wind developers explore high-value areas, prepare bids and develop leases. With easy access to vast amounts of data and advanced analytical tools, Wind AXIOM liberates wind development from spreadsheets and finally takes it to another level - an integrated data map.

Why Wind AXIOM?

wind-icon-1

Complete

Getting your hands on the right data for site-specific analysis is cumbersome. Through Wind AXIOM, we aggregate data from multiple sources, refine it, make it comparable, and add high-quality insights. As a result, Wind AXIOM offers the industry's most complete data and insight platform for wind feasibility studies.

Convenient

Managing huge files from different sources is a complicated and expensive task. Wind AXIOM takes that burden away. We have developed a platform that provides easy access to vast amounts of site-specific data in the cloud, cost-effective and secure.

wind-icon-3

Fast

Wind AXIOM is lightning fast. In our application, you might calculate energy and revenue outputs up to 90% faster than with previous technologies. Draw a lease on a map, select your data layers of choice, and complete your site assessment. What used to take days is done within seconds.

3E Logo-1

TGS is working with 3E to further increase model-derived resources in key offshore lease areas, including the US, Norway and other offshore wind leasing roadmap locations. 3E’s Virtual Met Mast (VMM) product provides an ideal substitute for real-world observations where measurements are yet to be acquired and operators demand high-time resolution long-term time series. Pre-computed VMM time series are provided in Wind AXIOM as an add-on for existing subscribers.
