After a formal RFP process attracting responses from industry leaders, the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DoE’s) Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has awarded AXYS the contract to supply two WindSentinel floating LiDAR systems. The systems will be managed by PNNL to support research and development to help advance the U.S. offshore wind industry. “This award […]
AXYS Technologies Inc has completed pre-commissioning of a WindSentinel platform for the United States Navy project to validate an offshore floating LiDAR wind resource assessment system. AXYS teamed up with Sound & Sea Technology (SST) as well as DNV GL to secure the US Navy contract and supply the system. The LiDAR underwent an initial […]
The teams of Sound & Sea Technology Inc, AXYS Technologies Inc, and DNV GL Inc have announced the award of a contract from the U.S. Navy for the validation of an offshore floating LiDAR wind resource assessment system. Sound & Sea Technology (SST) will provide overall management of the program, coordination with the Navy, ocean […]
AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS), working in conjunction with Sound and Sea Technology (SST), have developed an innovative sea lion protection barrier system for their WindSentinel™ offshore wind resource assessment system. The barrier is designed to ensure that seals and sea lions are prevented from climbing onto the WindSentinel during long term deployments in their habitation […]
AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS) congratulated Fishermen’s Energy on the recent deployment of their WindSentinel buoy. With a year of preparations and near-shore testing, the buoy was relocated from a test site near Atlantic City to an offshore area leased from the U. S. Department of Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Located eleven miles […]
The WindSentinel™, developed by AXYS Technologies Inc., is the world’s first wind resource assessment buoy capable of measuring wind data at heights of conventional offshore wind turbines. Today, AXYS announced that it has been contracted by the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Taiwan to supply the WindSentinel™ wind resource assessment buoy. Hence, we are bringing […]
AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS) announces that they have been contracted by the National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Taiwan to supply the WindSentinel™ wind resource assessment buoy. The purchase has been funded by a National Science Council grant under the Master Program of the National Science and Technology Program – Energy for Offshore Wind. The […]
After nearly two months of preliminary tests on Lake Michigan, the research buoy that is collecting data for the offshore wind assessment was moved onshore, where it will continue to operate this winter. The research buoy’s placement next to the lake will allow researchers to continue to collect and analyze meaningful wind data, said […]
AXYS Technologies Inc. congratulates Grand Valley State University’s Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Centre (MAREC) on the deployment of their first WindSentinel™ wind resource assessment buoy. The WindSentinel™ will be used to help conduct a comprehensive Great Lakes wind assessment review that features offshore wind assessment and related environmental studies on Lake Michigan. The […]
Andrie Specialized will be deploying the WindSentinel at various locations throughout Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake. The WindSentinel will be used to help conduct a comprehensive Great Lakes wind assessment review that features offshore wind assessment and related environmental studies on Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake.

Catch the Wind Ltd. announced today that its exclusive licensing partner, AXYS Technologies, has sold a WindSentinel™ buoy, a custom marine floating platform bundled with a Vindicator® Laser Wind Sensor (LWS) unit, to each of the Fishermen’s Energy LLC and the Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center (MAREC) of Grand Valley University. The sales mark […]
AXYS Technologies Inc. has recently won the bid to provide a WindSentinel™ wind resource assessment buoy to the Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center (MAREC) of Grand Valley State University located in Allendale Michigan and working in partnership with the University of Michigan and its Michigan Memorial Phoenix Energy Institute and the Michigan Natural Features […]
One of the major challenges in offshore wind resource assessment is gathering and validating data to support development of the wind turbines. To date, developers have constructed meteorological masts to collect comprehensive wind data. These masts, however, are approximately 100 metres tall and typically cost around $5 million to design and install. Once construction approval […]
The first floating buoy to test offshore wind energy in Lake Michigan is planned for six miles off the Muskegon shoreline next spring. By Dave Alexander (mlive) [mappress] Source: mlive, December 07, 2010
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 […]
