VALOREM adds Second Wind's advanced remote sensing system to its wind resource assessment capabilities

BOSTON and BORDEAUX, France, June 30, 2010 - Leading French wind project developer and renewable energy producer
VALOREM recently added a Triton Sonic Wind Profiler
(www.secondwind.com/influencers/?utm_campaign=Triton&utm_source=PR )
to its wind resource assessment program. The purchase, which followed an
initial rental Triton deployment, represents a significant endorsement by a
leader in the French wind industry.

VALOREM's acquisition followed a four-month performance validation study
at a site in southern France where Triton was installed adjacent to an 80
meter met tower equipped with Thies First Class anemometers. Triton's wind
data compared very favorably with that generated by the Thies anemometers:
average wind speeds at 60 and 80 meters agreed to within 0.1%, and the
average correlation coefficient was 0.973. Reliable hub height wind data
reduces resource uncertainty and provides the basis for successful wind
project developments.

Triton's dependability was also validated by its 99.7% operational uptime
during the four-month study. "Our decision to purchase Triton was based on
its high correlation to anemometer data, excellent reliability and ease of
deployment," says Simon Brillet, VALOREM's Research Director.

"We are very pleased that VALOREM has selected our technology for remote
wind resource assessments," added Colin France, Second Wind's Director of
European Business. "Second Wind looks forward to supporting VALOREM's efforts
to help Europe meet its renewable energy targets."


VALOREM S.A.S. has been a producer of green energy in France since 1994.
An independent pioneer in the development of wind power in France, VALOREM
also has interests in solar energy solutions, waste-to-energy, and marine
energy projects throughout Europe.
