multirotor Vestas Zephir LidarIn April 2016, Vestas revealed that they are testing a multi-rotor concept demonstrator. Vestas has now deployed remote sensing technology from ZephIR Lidar for the project. Many new load and control features will need to be developed, tested, and proven to assess the technical and eventually the commercial feasibility of the concept.

After a successful demonstration, Vestas will know more about the potential and possible use of the technologies. The installed ZephIR DM wind lidar will be used to accurately measure the wind characteristics, including wind speed, direction, veer, and shear across the full swept area of the rotors installed on the concept design. This information will enable the ongoing development of the Vestas control strategies on the design.
