Five papers from the ZephIR team presented at EWEA, Vienna

The recent EWEA conference in Vienna, Austria (4-7 February 2013) featured several presentations and posters covering cutting-edge research carried out by staff at Zephir Ltd.

“Relative Power Curve Measurements Using Turbine Mounted, Continuous-Wave Lidar” by C Slinger et al presented data from a trial in Denmark, including power curves obtained by a ZephIR 300 unit measuring at different ranges in front of the turbine.

“The effect of buoy motion on continuous wave lidar wind velocity measurement” by M Pitter et al showed that measurements by ZephIR are robust even under quite severe platform motions.

“Lidar Turbulence Measurements for Wind Farm Energy Yield Analysis” by W Barker et al presented evidence of the ability of ZephIR 300 to measure TI values in non-complex terrain to an accuracy suitable for use in a typical wind farm energy yield analysis.

Finally, two papers in collaboration with the Wind Energy Department at Risø DTU describe novel turbine-mounted lidar measurement schemes: “First field demonstration of blade-mounted wind lidars” (A T Pedersen et al), and “Full two-dimensional rotor plane inflow measurements by a spinner-integrated wind lidar” (M Sjöholm et al).

Our Recommendation
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

Our Recommendation
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
