SgurrEnergy’s 2nd generation wind Lidar, the Galion, has produced the first image of multiple offshore wind turbine wakes ever captured by a scanning Lidar device.

The image was revealed by the wind Lidar research group at the Stuttgart Wind Energy department (SWE) at Stuttgart University in Germany, which is using SgurrEnergy’s Galion Lidar in a an offshore wind energy research campaign being conducted at the Baltic-1 wind farm in the German Baltic Sea. The campaign aims to learn about controlling and improving offshore wind farms’ efficiency and availability and the durability of their wind turbine generators (WTGs). It is the first time an entire offshore wind farm has been observed simultaneously by SCADA, long range Lidar and load measurements on certain selected WTGs.
