The Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) has published an update of the Floating LiDAR (light detection and ranging) Roadmap, accepted as the international industry framework for technology maturity.
The Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator has published a roadmap for commercial acceptance of floating LIDAR technology. As part of the Offshore Wind Accelerator programme, The Carbon Trust, along with a consortium of industrial partners, are investigating the potential of floating LIDAR (light detection and ranging) technology in the context of wind resource assessment for the offshore wind […]
France-based Akrocean has received stage 2 validation for its WINDSEA floating LiDAR (FLD) under the OWA Carbon Trust Roadmap. According to Akrocean, the validation was granted by DNV GL and marks commercial acceptance for the floating LiDAR. Offshore trials that began earlier in 2018 were performed in the English Channel and have been independently reviewed by DNV […]
Offshore wind farm development and operation are by nature more challenging than onshore, with additional environmental parameters to control and design for. More than 12 years ago, floating LiDAR (lidar) devices were introduced to the offshore wind industry - to meet a specific market need. Developers in the growing, but not yet mature, offshore wind […]
French floating LiDAR developer Akrocean has deployed a WINDSEA buoy at the Fécamp met mast as part of the type 2 validation process of the OWA Carbon Trust Roadmap.
Canada's Axys Technologies Inc. has met all of the Stage 3 performance criteria outlined in the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator Roadmap for Floating LiDAR Technology (OWA Roadmap).
The Carbon Trust has announced the completion of the world’s largest trial of floating Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) systems.
The Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) has launched an implementation guide for the deployment of floating light detection and ranging (LiDAR) systems. The OWA Floating LiDAR Recommended Practice report will enable developers to effectively deploy cost-effective wind measurement solutions to generate bankable data on wind resource, OWA said. The report provides recommended practice for both trial campaigns and […]
ECN has reported that EOLOS FLS200 floating LiDAR performs in compliance with the KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) of the Carbon Trust’s roadmap for the commercial acceptance of floating LiDAR technology. In October 2015, the EOLOS FLS200 floating LiDAR buoy completed a 6-month validation campaign next to the IEC-compliant IJmuiden offshore meteorological mast in the North Sea. The campaign has been carried […]
Fugro has deployed a floating LiDAR at ScottishPower Renewables’ East Anglia ONE wind farm zone, as part of the Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) programme, managed by the Carbon Trust. Fugro has supplied all the equipment being used in the test project, while a local vessel, The Suffolk Spirit, assisted with the installation process, which was also supported by Small […]
ECN has confirmed that the Fugro Oceanor Seawatch floating LiDAR is in the pre-commercial stage according to the Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) roadmap for the commercial acceptance of floating LiDAR technology. In collaboration with RWE, Eneco and Fugro Oceanor, ECN has performed a Fugro Oceanor Seawatch floating LiDAR validation trial near the offshore meteorological mast IJmuiden, […]
At this year's EWEA, Offshore WIND took the opportunity to interview Rajai Aghabi, CEO of EOLOS Floating Lidar Solutions, a newly launched company specializing in floating wind lidars. Offshore WIND: How did EOLOS Floating Lidar Solutions enter the offshore wind market? Was the cooperation with KIC InnoEnergy crucial in launching your company? Rajai Aghabi: EOLOS came […]
Wind energy consultancy Oldbaum Services has added floating LiDAR certification services to its portfolio. The first two certification buoys being tested by the wind energy consultancy were deployed on March 8, 2015 offshore in the UK. The certification process involves full system checks, power communications and wind data acquisition to assess suitability for remote deployment for […]
The Carbon Trust today announced details of the world’s largest and most challenging validation trials of floating LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology. Up to five different offshore wind measurement devices will be subjected to an extensive testing and validation against the state-of-the-art meteorological masts at three North Sea Round 3 sites. This campaign is […]
ZephIR 300 has demonstrated its ability for providing quantitative wind speed measurements, to an industry-approved standard and is now accepted within a Technical Advisor / Bank’s Engineers formal energy assessment of a modern scale wind farm with specific site conditions forming part of the appropriate measurement methodology chosen. Further, the reduction in energy yield ‘uncertainty’ […]
Fraunhofer IWES has successfully finished the validation of their Wind Lidar Buoy which confirms the commercial acceptance of wind data from the on-board ZephIR lidar for use in floating offshore energy assessments, according to the criteria within the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator roadmap for the commercial acceptance of floating lidar technology. An offshore verification […]
On behalf of Mainstream Renewable Power, DNV GL has successfully completed an independent validation assessment of the FLiDAR offshore wind measurement device. Based on the results, FLiDAR’s floating LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) device has now formally reached Stage 2 on the Carbon Trust Offshore Wind Accelerator Roadmap for commercial acceptance. Floating LiDAR technology uses […]
AXYS Technologies Inc. has announced that the WindSentinel platform ordered by EDP Inovação (EDPi) under the European funded project, DemoWFloat, has been deployed off the coast of Portugal near Viana do Castelo. The WindSentinel floating LiDAR platform was delivered ahead of schedule and EDPi will now use it to test and monitor the performance of their […]
AXYS Technologies will be presenting at the Windpower Wind Resource Assessment (WRA) event from April 8-10 in London, UK. Windpower Monthly's 3rd annual event is looking at the latest wind resource methodology to reduce uncertainty estimations and improve project bankability. Graham Howe will be presenting on Day 3, April 10th at 11:30am about the "Application of […]
