AXYS Technologies has announced deployment of two dual-LiDAR WindSentinel floating LiDAR systems, utilising the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s offshore anemometry mast.
This will be the world’s first deployment of a floating LiDAR system to feature two LiDARs, as each system has an additional Zephir 300, AXYS’ first deployment of this sensor. The WindSentinel systems will be deployed in the North Sea, three nautical miles off the coast of Blyth, Northumberland for a one month validation and research study at the ORE Catapult’s National Renewable Energy Centre. They will then be moved to France for a 12-month campaign as part of a bankable energy assessment for two commercial wind farms.
