Victorious Festival is set to take place this Friday 26th to Sunday 28th August in one of the most beautiful festival locations in the world. Headline acts Stereophonics, Paolo Nutini and Sam Fender are set to stun the town of Southsea with their popular hits all weekend.

Currently, the forecast shows sunny weather with highs of 23c – predicting a fantastic weekend of singing and dancing. But, the festival would have been delayed if treacherous conditions were to have descended during installation of their temporary structures.

With the help of RPR, Victorious Festival installed a Gill WindSonic 1 sensor a few hundred meters from the festival site. Combined with a WS-15A display, the organisers can easily read live wind data 24 hours a day.

This ensures that health and safety protocols are followed, and no work is done in dangerous conditions. Being so close to the coast, the importance of actively monitoring the site is elevated, meaning that the ability to view live wind data at the site of the festival online through both the WS-15A and becomes extremely valuable.

With the option of Premium membership to WeatherFile, partners and users can set up customisable alerts to certain parameters such as wind speed. This makes monitoring health and safety hazards extremely easy and can take the assumptions out of safety decisions.

Perfect for temporary events

The range of meteorological sensors that RPR offers, from Gill MaxiMet, WindSonic and MetConnect can easily be coupled with our very own WeatherFile technology, providing a fantastic solution to live weather monitoring.

Decisions on health and safety, particularly in the events industry, can often be complex and subjective. However, WeatherFile can be trusted to provide highly accurate and reliable data on a vast range of weather parameters needed to take the guess work out of tricky decisions on when to stop and start operations.
