Banks Renewables has contracted wind resource campaign management company ZX Measurement Services (ZX MS) to support their expanding development work in the UK.
The family-owned Banks Renewables owns and operates 223MW of renewable energy generation, with a further 547MW in various stages of development. With ten operational onshore wind farms across Scotland and the North of England, a further 14 sites are in development and wind measurements at key wind sites are underway.
ZX MS has recently completed the first of these two-year wind measurement campaigns, using the ZX 300 wind Lidar, at the proposed Bodinglee Wind Farm in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. If consented the 37 turbine site is expected to deliver 266MW of clean energy. For its Lidar system at the projected Bodinglee Wind Farm, ZX MS provided Banks Renewables with expert data measuring, power supply, and installation services. ZX MS has also ensured communications for data transfer, data administration, and reporting to provide timely updates on project progress.
