Axys Technologies Inc (Axys) has announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of the FLiDAR NV shares.
Canadian-based and privately-held, Axys has been active in environmental monitoring for the last 40 years. In 2009, Axys developed the WindSentinel floating LiDAR to meet the wind resource assessment needs of the offshore wind industry. The WindSentinel has since evolved into a dual-LiDAR platform. Belgium-based FLiDAR was formed in 2011 as a joint venture between 3E and Offshore Wind Assistance (part of the DEME group). Axys has plans to expand the capabilities of the current FLiDAR office in Belgium to include Axys’ other offshore measurement offerings such as metocean buoys, TRIAxys wave buoys, and the Axys-APS Geo-portal. Axys will centralise its’ complete European sales, service and engineering team from this new office which aims to continue product development through R&D projects which involve customers, strategic suppliers and commercially-focused research centers. The acquisition closed August 31, 2015. Contract terms have not been released.
