More about WPred

Our team

WPred was founded by Dr. Christophe Sibuet Watters, an engineer with 15 years of experience in the wind industry sector, and a specialist in numerical modeling of wind turbines and atmospheric flow. He has worked in several R&D institutions, as well as consultant for the wind energy sector.

Thomas-Antoine O'Neill leads software development efforts at WPred. With tons of enterprise software experience under his belt, he teamed up with WPred three years ago to build WPlanif: an innovative calendar web application that helps wind farm maintenance teams schedule their work while taking wind power forecasts into account.

Our software development team's pillar is Hugo Migneron. Hugo has years of experience as a freelance software development consultant and an expert in web technologies. He joined WPred in 2013 to help build WPlanif and he's been our most productive team member ever since.

François Bergeron a graduate of Polytechnique Montréal and is the newest addition to the WPred family. He's in charge of our sales efforts but also lends Christophe a hand on the scientific side of things. His physics engineering background with a masters in Renewable Energies made him the perfect candidate to build our solar power prediction solution.
