Permanent met lidars deployed at Irish wind farms

LinkedIn +

ZX Lidars has delivered ZX 300 lidars to Statkraft Ireland, part of Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy, for the purpose of assisting with operational wind farm monitoring, from power performance tests through to the provision of wind measurements for production forecasting/reporting.

According to ZX, use of wind lidars in this capacity reduces the working at height and planning requirements associated with traditional met masts. In addition, lidars can measure to higher heights across the full wind turbine rotor, and with greater certainty over long periods of time.

ZX Lidars provides vertical and horizontal profiling wind lidars to accurately measure wind conditions remotely and above or ahead of their installed position up to several hundred meters. These accurate, independent wind measurements are a cornerstone in the development, construction and operation of wind farms globally, according to the company.
