A new wind measurement campaign is underway in western Greece as part of a renewable energy power project. Istos Renewables is performing the wind measurement programme using a ZX 300 Lidar together with just a 30-metre-high wind data reference masts.
Recording at four locations, the latest measurement campaign from Istos is to form a key part of the development of an approximately 160MW wind power installation that is planned for the location. Data obtained during the analysis period will support the optimisation of the project both in terms of the final layout and the selection of the ideal wind turbine model, including the rotor diameter and its rated generation capacity. Recording wind data across the full turbine rotor and beyond top tip height, the ZX 300 Lidar eliminates the need for a full scale conventional meteorological mast approach.
