Leosphere has launched a lidar that mounts to wind turbines to measure wind conditions.
WindCube Nacelle has a range of 700m, can be fitted to any wind turbine, and is the only lidar to provide rapid data that meets power performance testing (PPT) requirements of the largest wind turbines.
It can be mounted temporarily or fully integrated into the nacelle to help operators and OEMs to assess turbine performance.
Alexandre Sauvage, CEO of Leosphere, said WindCube Nacelle can be used for both onshore and offshore wind turbines.
He said, “As turbines continue to grow taller, performance testing and verification becomes increasingly important as underperformance equates to reduced power output and significant lost revenue.”
