The report provides recommended practice for both trial campaigns and […]
Ecofys WTTS has performed the first ever full uncertainty assessment of a floating LiDAR to support the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) in their preparations of the next round of Dutch offshore tenders. The aim of the study was to quantify the certainty with which the wind data, currently measured at the offshore wind farm zones Hollandse […]
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 […]
