Northern Seas Wind Index Database (NORSEWInD)

  • Matthew Stickland (Creator)



NORSEWInD is a ground-breaking EU project to provide a dependable offshore wind atlas of the North, Irish and Baltic Seas.

It is the product of four years of work under the coordination of Oldbaum Services and carried out by a consortium of 21partners throughout Europe with a budget of €7.9 million Euros. The project has been funded under the EC FP7 programme, receiving a contribution of €3.9million Euros.

The data set is available from the NORSEWInD site along with a reliable GIS tool, modelled data and satellite derived wind atlases. Amongst many firsts, during the project some 12 years of LiDAR data has been acquired, collated, quality controlled and analysed. This represents the largest single purpose wind LiDAR dataset in the industry worldwide.
