As part of the measurement of wind, metocean and environmental conditions to inform the design and assessment of its Buchan Offshore Wind project, Floating Energy Allyance (FEA) has deployed a floating LiDAR buoy within the option site, around 75 km off the Aberdeenshire coast.
The floating LiDAR device was deployed in the North Sea by Partrac. The deployment of the EOLOS FLS200 floating LiDAR and metocean devices to collect site specific data represent an important step in the development of the project and the data collected will inform energy yield, engineering design and environmental assessments. Floating Energy Allyance is the developer of Buchan Offshore Wind. It is located 75 km northeast of Fraserburgh on the Aberdeenshire Coast with a capacity of around 1GW. The partners are BayWa r.e, Elicio and BW Ideol.
