NRG Systems, a designer and manufacturer of smart technologies for a range of wind, solar and meteorological applications, has reached an agreement with ZX Lidars to distribute the ZX 300 onshore vertical profiler through its global network. NRG Systems announced in March 2019 that it would sell and support ZX Lidars in North America.
The expanded agreement with ZX Lidars means that NRG Systems is one of the only companies to offer complete met mast systems as well as complete lidar solutions on a global scale. By coupling these technologies with installation and maintenance services provided by its worldwide partner network, NRG Systems offers customers end-to-end solutions tailored to fit all projects, no matter where they are or what their measurement requirements may be.
Gregory Erdmann, NRG’s vice president, global sales, said, “The NRG global sales channel is very excited about offering ZX Lidars to the wind energy market to round out our complete wind measurement solutions. By extending our reach beyond the North American market, we are certain that our worldwide local support network will leverage our vast lidar experience to help customers acquire reliable, bankable data for their wind energy projects.”
Ian Locker, managing director of ZX Lidars, said, “Further to a decade of NRG’s overall experience with lidar, we are delighted that within a relatively short period of time they have requested to, and indeed been authorized to, support ZX Lidars globally. This agreement greatly enhances our existing global distribution and regional support network by delivering an even greater customer experience around the world for our continuous wave doppler lidar ZX 300 – a DNV GL Stage 3, IEC compliant bankable wind sensor.”
