AXYS Deploys Two Dual-LiDAR Floaters at Catapult’s Met Mast

AXYS Technologies has deployed two dual-LiDAR WindSentinel floating LiDAR systems, utilising the Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult’s offshore anemometry mast.

This will be the world’s first deployment of a floating LiDAR system to feature two LiDARs, as each system has an additional Zephir 300, AXYS’ first deployment of this sensor.

The WindSentinel systems will be deployed in the North Sea, three nautical miles off the coast of Blyth, Northumberland for a one month validation and research study at the ORE Catapult’s National Renewable Energy Centre. They will then be moved to France for a 12-month campaign as part of a bankable energy assessment for two commercial wind farms.

“AXYS is very pleased with the world’s first deployment of two WindSentinel systems, each equipped with two LiDARs, for validation against the mast at Blyth,” says Graham Howe, Director of Sales at AXYS Technologies. “We look forward to working more with ORE Catapult on innovative technologies designed to reduce the cost of offshore wind.”

ORE Catapult’s Project and Technical Manager, Jonathan Hughes, said: “It is really exciting to see our met mast being used to play a key part in a ground-breaking and innovative project to validate two dual-LiDAR floating LiDAR systems. This project reinforces the importance of the mast for enabling research, development, testing, validation and verification of remote sensing technologies, which are vital to reducing the cost of offshore consenting.”
