Dutch energy company Eneco has purchased Fugro’s new wind LiDAR buoy whilst a Japanese company is to deploy their buoy close to a floating power generation system.
In January 2014 Fugro’s Seawatch wind LiDAR buoy was deployed 75 kilometres off the coast of IJmuiden in The Netherlands where wind data will be compared with data from three levels on a met mast at the site, together with data from a LiDAR mounted on the mast. This testing will enhance a field trial which took place off the coast of Norway in spring, 2012. The testing and results will be verified by DNV GL Energy.
