Press release date: December 2, 2013

Vaisala has signed a contract to deliver seven dual polarization weather radars to Turkey. The contract with the Turkish State Meteorological Service includes WRM200 weather radars, installation services and training. The deliveries start during the summer of 2014 and will be completed by the end of 2016. The value of the deal is EUR 6.3 million.

"The Turkish State Meteorological Service is a long-term customer of Vaisala with whom we have been cooperating since 1990. We have earlier delivered six weather radars to Turkey. After the implementation of the new radars the Turkish State Meteorological Service will be able to serve the whole nation with high quality meteorological data and weather forecasts," tells Kai Konola, Executive Vice President of Vaisala Weather Business.

A weather radar is the single most effective device to observe rainfall. A dual-polarized radar distinguishes between different types of rainfall and between rain and non-meteorological objects, such as birds and insects. It also measures the intensity of precipitation more accurately, providing valuable information for local short-term weather forecasts, for example.
