DNV GL has launched its first LiDAR verification site in Asia, located in the Jella Province in South Korea.
According to DNV GL, LiDAR verification campaigns for Asian stakeholders previously had to be conducted at oversea sites, while they now have the opportunity to be done locally.
“Previously, customers who wished to have their LiDAR verified had to send their equipment to our European offices,” said Nicolas Renon, Executive Vice President, APAC, DNV GL – Energy.
“With this new site, we will be able to deliver more cost-efficient and higher quality data, tailored to the characteristics of the Asia Pacific region and to support the growth of the fast growing local wind sector.”
The new test site, developed with the input from DNV GL’s German team, is located at Youngkwang and is said to provide optimal wind conditions for the verification of wind systems.
To date, Korean wind farm developer DaeHan Energy and distributor of LiDAR device manufacturer VisionPlus have successfully completed their verification campaign at the site, DNV GL said.
