The next level of ground based cloud seeding

Cloud Seeding Technologies’ Vesta ground generator combines state of the art custom-designed seeding materials with optimum combustion techniques and the latest control and communications technologies to achieve best-in-class precipitation results. The generator is designed and manufactured in Germany to the highest quality standards.

Vesta can be effectively employed for several use cases in both cold and warm cloud environments. Remote operation is made possible by monitoring and management over 3G/4G networks, a built-in weather station and solar-powered battery unit, and automatic cleaning of critical tubes and nozzles. Unlike other generators CST’s Vesta uses a safe, propane and butane-free combustion system. To increase stabilisation in windy conditions, tension cables fix the generator to the ground.
