Introduction

Climate and weather

Asiaq has extensive knowledge of the construction and operation of weather stations for both private and public clients. Our equipment comes from established suppliers and our own, competent workshop, and is well adapted to the arctic environment. The measured weather data is sent directly to our servers via satellite or mobile network, and can be monitored on a daily basis.

Asiaq operates a network of weather stations on the west coast of Greenland, in cooperation with Greenland Airports and the Danish Meteorological Institute. The weather observations are continuously published on our weather website,
