Oldbaum Services is proud to offer a new service to its wind data menu - floating LiDAR (Light detection and Ranging) certification services.
The first two certification buoys being tested by the wind energy consultancy were deployed on March 8, 2015 offshore in the UK. The certification process involves full system checks, power communications and wind data acquisition to assess suitability for remote deployment for wind resource assessment. This process is in accordance with the Carbon Trust Offshore roadmap which was published for commercial acceptance of floating LiDAR technology. Oldbaum will include this new offering as part of their ISO/ IEC 17025:2005 accreditation, which the company obtained in February 2010 for calibrating and measuring cup anemometers.
