AXYS Technologies has recently completed another two validation campaigns for its FLiDAR 6M wind assessment platform. The latest validation campaigns took place at FINO 1 in the North Sea and at West of Duddon Sands in the Irish Sea, adding 11 more months of validation data.
Both validation campaigns achieved over 98% data availability through harsh winter storm conditions while meeting or exceeding the accuracy standards established by the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) Roadmap. DNV GL has carried out numerous independent validations of AXYS’ FLiDAR systems over the past 3 years, comparing over 20 months of FLiDAR Wind Assessment data against offshore met mast data from FINO1, NAREC and West of Duddon Sands. Since the initial deployment of its flagship FLiDAR system in 2009, AXYS’ FLiDARs have successfully completed 17 offshore wind assessment campaigns and now 10 offshore met mast validations covering a range of operational, site and met ocean conditions in Europe, North America and Asia.
