MANASSAS, VA, June 6, 2011 /CNW/ - Catch the Wind, Ltd. (TSX-V: CTW) announced today that it has sold 6 Vindicator® Laser Wind Sensor (LWS) units to affiliated entities of Invenergy Wind LLC, a developer, owner and operator of large-scale renewable and other clean energy generation facilities in North America and Europe.

"We are very pleased to have sold six Vindicator units to the nations' largest independent wind power generation company," said Phil Rogers, President and CEO of Catch the Wind Inc. "Based on the positive results of all of our evaluation programs to date we expected accelerated sales of the Vindicator in 2011 and beyond.  This announcement along with recent sales announcements is creating a sales momentum that validates the belief that 2011 will be a breakout year for Catch the Wind."

The installation of the Vindicator® LWS units will be in groups of two located at three different Invenergy wind farm sites in the continental United States.

The Vindicator® LWS is part of the Company's "next generation" turbine control and performance enhancement system for utility-scale wind turbines. From its position on top of the nacelle, the Vindicator® LWS determines wind speed and direction up to 300 meters in front of the turbine, providing a three-dimensional view of actual wind conditions.  The Company's turbine performance enhancement system responds to the real-time, actual measurements of the Vindicator® LWS to optimally control a wind turbine's performance for the purposes of increasing energy output and reducing damaging stress loads.

Financial terms of the sales agreement were not disclosed.
