Published: Sunday, April 1, 2018 Newsletter 44 contains some interesting costumer stories as well as noteworthy product information. This month’s topics range from Giant power plants in Morocco, the use of outdoor weather stations for indoor climate control and the benefits of AirShield® DNI to information on Lufft weather sensors in combination with Kipp & Zonen pyranometers, rooftop PV sensors and DustIQ on-site calibration.

Giant Power plants in Morocco equipped with Kipp & Zonen

Noor II and Noor III are giant power plants in Morocco equipped with Kipp & Zonen solar monitoring instruments. These power plants, located on an 1160 m high plateau, south of the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, are the result from the new energy strategy the Moroccan government adopted in 2009. Dilus, our distributor in Spain was instrumental in the decision for Kipp & Zonen.

Lufft Weather Sensors with Kipp & Zonen on Top

When Kipp & Zonen joined the OTT group in January we found ourselves with a number of sister companies, one of which is G. Lufft Mess- und Regeltechnik GmbH. Kipp & Zonen already had a longstanding relationship with Lufft since they have integrated our pyranometers in a range of all-in-one weather sensors.

Irradiance Monitoring Systems for Rooftop PV Installations

Rooftop Solar is spreading at an accelerated pace. Kipp & Zonen is the first company to design a sensor especially for rooftop solar monitoring. The RT 1 is easy to install and very cost-effective. Read all about the benefits of the RT1 and why you cannot afford to do without.

CREST investigates the benefits of AirShield® DNI in a less obvious climate

CREST, the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology of Loughborough University in the UK were the first to install the AirShield® DNI for pyrheliometers. They specialize in improving the performance and reliability of PV systems. The AirShield® DNI is said to help measure the dirt accumulation on pyrheliometers, so this is what CREST is investigating. They also intend to start an experiment by checking whether the AirShield makes any reduction in condensation or frosting of windows. We wish them good luck with their experiments.

Outdoor Weather Stations for Indoor Climate Control

Climate control is essential for plant propagation and growth. SERCOM Regeltechniek BV, a Dutch company based in Lisse, home of the famous Keukenhof Gardens, is specialized in automated climate control for greenhouses. The algorithms of a climate control system rely heavily upon the outdoor weather conditions, so SERCOM measures temperature, relative humidity, wind velocity, wind direction and rain intensity along with solar irradiance. SERCOM uses outdoor weather stations with the Kipp & Zonen CMP 3 pyranometer as its key feature.
