REG Power Management (RPM) is deploying ZephIR Lidar systems to achieve the highest levels of safety within their wind farm constructions projects. The ground-based device measures wind speed and direction from 10 metres up to 200 metres to advise and assist with the planned and ongoing construction activities at a site.

Live data can be streamed from ZephIR Lidars to a PC or a large screen to make all contractors on site aware of the conditions so that all works can be both prepared for efficiently and then actioned safely. A wind shear profile is displayed graphically as well as instant wind speeds and directions being refreshed every second to inform decision-making on whether to mobilise cranes and crew. The use of ZephIR Lidar systems for Construction Monitoring has been pioneered by REG Power Management as part of the company’s drive towards achieving BS OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety, expected in July 2017.
