The Carbon Trust roadmap for the Commercial Acceptance of Floating Lidar Technology outlines a strategy to ensure the commercial reliability and acceptability of Floating LiDAR technology, including a certification process.
Based on the current NOAH verification results and its fulfilment of all OWA Roadmap KPIs, DNV GL draws the conclusion that the RPS Lidar 4.5 employing a ZP300M unit has formally qualified for Stage 2 “pre-commercial” in the context of the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator Roadmap for the Commercial Acceptance of Floating Lidar Technology. The buoy has been validated off Blyth in the UK for 6 months. RPS’ LiDAR buoy features full redundancy in power supply, data logging and satellite 2-way communications. The buoy is also environmentally friendly with zero emissions.
