Tilt Renewables has confirmed the use of wind Lidar technology from ZX Lidars (formerly ZephIR Lidar) to remotely measure wind conditions above ground without the need for a traditional met mast.
Initial deployment has been to a remote site in complex terrain primarily for the purpose of confirming the quality of the wind resource. With more than 1.6GW of approved wind projects in Australia and New Zealand Tilt Renewables required a flexible solution to wind resource assessment that could also be used to bolster existing anemometry and with an eye on operational sites emerging. New Zealand-based wind engineering consultancy Energy3 provided advice and support on how to achieve this. ZX Lidars provides vertical and horizontal profiling wind Lidar to accurately measure wind conditions remotely and ahead of their installed position.
