Floating LiDAR campaign launched for offshore wind project in SardiniaCopenhagen Offshore Partners (COP) has announced the Ichnusa Wind Power Project has deployed a floating lidar to monitor wind and wave conditions off the Sardinian coast where the project will be developed. The floating lidar campaign is being managed by Akrocean.
 
Monitoring will last for twelve to fourteen months, and data collected will inform design of Ichnua’s foundations, cables, and wind turbine generators, as well as ensure protection of the local environment. As part of the campaign, CNR (Italy’s National Research Center) will deploy additional equipment on the buoy to support research and reporting activities in the Mediterranean, including underwater camera monitoring of microplastics in the water column.
 
COP is leading development for Ichnusa on behalf of the project’s owners, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners through its Flagship Funds and GreenIT, the joint venture owned 51% by Plenitude (Eni) and 49% by CDP Equity. The Ichnusa Wind Power Project is a 504MW floating project planned approximately 35 kilometers off the coast of Sardinia, Italy.
