Performance Stability of Continuous Wave Lidars in High Motion, Offshore Environments for Wind Resource Assessments

Zephir-Fig-1Remote sensing on floating offshore platforms such as buoys, barges and ships provides a cost-effective alternative to expensive foundation-mounted offshore wind monitoring towers for wind resource assessment [1][2]. In addition, it is unlikely that foundation-mounted offshore meteorological masts will ever be viable in water depths of over 30 metres, whereas floating platforms can be deployed in more or less any water depth. This will become particularly relevant as floating wind turbines in deep offshore waters start to come on-line.
