Accurate, affordable wind Lidars for remote wind measurements.

We are ZX Lidars

Our wind Lidars are deployed globally onshore, offshore and mounted on structures such as wind turbines for wind energy and meteorological applications.

ZX Lidars - ZX300

Reduce your onshore wind project and financial uncertainty by measuring wind characteristics higher than a met mast and by mobilising measurements across a whole site with wind Lidar. Be flexible within your planning applications by using a low visual impact, low height device.

Wind resource assessment and measurements onshore

Bankable standalone wind data in simple and complex terrain

Extreme environments, proven operation for 10 years

10-300m range - the widest range available of any Lidar

ZX Lidars - ZX300M

Reduce your offshore wind farm project and financial uncertainty by measuring wind characteristics higher than a met mast and by mobilising measurements across a whole site with wind Lidar. Integrated in to all major Floating Buoy platforms.

Wind resource assessment and measurements offshore

Responsible for 95%+ of all new offshore wind measurements globally

£150bn of finance invested in clean energy from ZX 300M data

10-300m range - the widest range available of any Lidar

ZX Lidars - ZXTM

Validate your wind turbine performance and reach financial close with nacelle based Lidar Power Performance Testing. Optimise asset performance with operational power curve and yaw measurements. Develop wind farm Lidar control strategies with wake steering and load control.

Power Performance Measurements and Testing to IEC standards including IEC 61400-50-3:2022

Accepted by all major turbine OEMs

Unique measurements of wakes and complex flow

True wind shear and wind veer measurements across the whole rotor

 
Why Chose ZX Lidars?

We are 100% Lidars

We are specialists. We focus 100% on wind Lidars (Lidar / laser anemometers) and wind Lidar measurements. We have a unique history of innovation, world firsts and were the first to bring Lidars to the commercial market for wind energy. We are led by our customer’s needs and we are positively driving towards a better, more competitive wind industry.

Ease of Use

Our products don’t ordinarily need planning permission and are easy to mobilise and move across different sites and operate in all terrains – simple, complex and forested.

Our Lidars are built to last and have a proven track record of achieving more than 10 years operation, and across 1000’s of deployments globally with a low through-life cost.

Reliable Bankable Data

Our Lidars provide reliable data, accepted by consultants in simple and complex terrain around the world. Our systems are calibrated, they are validated by DNV, Deutsche WindGuard, Natural Power and UL, and have achieved Classification according to IEC 61400-12-1.

 

Wind data, as a service

We provide access to low cost, accurate and reliable wind measurements from industry-leading wind Lidars, and options for Sodars and met masts to suit every project requirement. We support ZX Lidars, Vaisala, Leosphere and AQSystem.

Our Trusted Service Providers work closely with us to provide global Lidar services locally for your wind energy projects.

 

"We chose the [ZX 300] wind Lidar because of its proven strengths when operating in our Canadian environments where the atmosphere is particularly clear and sites can be high altitudes.”

Boralex

"The ZX 300 wind Lidars supplied by ZX Lidars are being used as both a sole wind measurement sensor but also to enhance met mast installations. Lidars provide great coverage at a range of measurement heights, combined with their leading accuracy at these remote, often complex sites.”

RES

"Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy approves the use of the nacelle based Continuous Wave scanning Lidar ‘ZX TM’ from Lidar OEM ZX Lidars for Power Performance Testing. Operational rotor equivalent power curves can also be measured with ZX TM’s unique 50 points around the full rotor swept area, particularly important for turbines with larger rotor diameters offshore and on sites with complex veer or shear profiles onshore."

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy

“Deutsche WindGuard has been supporting lidar applications since 2004. While stand-alone lidar measurements in flat terrain have already had a high acceptance in the past... The design and structure of [the ZX CFS application] provides the best available solution for bankable wind resource and energy yield assessment based on stand-alone lidar in complex terrain.”

Deutsche WindGuard

"ZX 300 is the market leading Lidar and we are supporting many clients now with our measurement services using this technology."
