FLiDAR Completes Neart na Gaoithe Measurements

FLiDAR has wrapped up the onsite wind measurements at Mainstream Renewable Power's 448MW Neart na Gaoithe offshore wind farm.

The FLiDAR floating LiDAR buoy provided on-site wind measurements and resulted in a considerable development time and cost saving compared to a traditional meteorological mast.

The unit is now decommissioned and undergoing post validation at the ORE Catapult offshore met mast.

Neart na Gaoithe, located in the North Sea off the East coast of Scotland, has recently been awarded a Contract for Difference (CfD) by the UK government.

The FLiDAR technology has been developed by 3E, global renewable energy consultancy and software provider, and Offshore & Wind Assistance (OWA), the subsidiary of marine contractor Geosea.
