Energinet has awarded Fugro a new contract to provide floating wind lidar measurements for five offshore wind projects in Denmark. Fugro will install and operate ten Seawatch Wind Lidar Buoys across three main locations, namely the Kattegat Sea, Baltic Sea, and North Sea.
These buoys will provide real-time metocean and environmental monitoring data to support investment decisions for offshore wind farms. Starting in summer 2023, Fugro's Seawatch Wind Lidar Buoys will be deployed to record continuous measurements of wind, waves, and currents for a minimum of one year. This data will be used to support the development and design process of offshore wind projects, including energy yield calculations, site assessments, and the selection and design of foundations, grid connections, and cable corridors.
