ZephIR Lidar has announced that it has installed a turbine-mounted ZephIR DM wind lidar on the 270MW Lincs Offshore Wind Farm.

Located five miles off the Skegness coast, Lincs Wind Farm is a joint venture between Centrica Energy, Siemens Project Ventures and DONG Energy. It is anticipated that the installation of the lidar unit will help to identify opportunities where a possible improvement to production from the installed 75 Siemens 3.6 MW wind turbine generators can be achieved. ZephIR Dual Mode (DM) is a continuous wave wind lidar, installed on the nacelle of a turbine and provides rotor equivalent wind measurements out in advance of a wind turbine from just 10 metres, well within the blade induction zone, and as far as 300 metres. The Centrica O&M team will use ZephIR DM as a permanent tool for the wind farm, to monitor and safeguard individual turbine performance and overall energy production.
