RES Commercial Manager, Simon Feeney agrees framework deal with ZephIR Senior Sales Manager, Matt Smith
Ian Ravey, Head of Measurement Services, RES stated: “ZephIR 300 and ZephIR DM have proven themselves time and time again as one of the few finance-grade remote sensors, and therefore fully meet the very high standards demanded by RES for inclusion in its instrumentation portfolio. We have worked for more than a decade with ZephIR on both commercial deployments and on leading research programmes.”
Simon Feeney, Commercial Manager of Measurement Services, RES stated: “The use of the ZephIR DM at RES gives us a significant edge on optimising the performance of operational wind turbines. In our experience ZephIR Lidars are reliable, cost effective and the end-to-end services provided are of a very high quality. ZephIR 300 uniquely provides accurate, low level wind measurements unmatched by any other Remote Sensor, so it’s very well suited for noise assessments and low mast correlations. The longest service and warranty period currently offered in the market enables significant efficiencies when we are planning our global deployments”.
ZephIR 300 is an accurate, robust and cost-effective lidar with the longest service period (3 years) of any comparable device. The first remote sensor to achieve DNV GL Stage 3 acceptance for use with no additional met masts, combined with excellent classification results ensure the device is completely fit for purpose in the maturing lidar market.
ZephIR DM delivers high-resolution, full rotor scanning capability unparalleled by any other turbine-mounted lidar. It’s ability to take slices of data across the full rotor, combined with the on-board motion recognition system, make measurements within +/-1% of hub height a possibility. This provides a measurement equivalent with the requirements stipulated within the draft revision of the IEC Standard for Power Performance measurements (IEC 61400-12-1).
Matt Smith, Senior Sales Manager, ZephIR Lidar said: “It’s great to see this relationship develop with the Measurement Services team at RES; their use and offering of our lidar products is testament to their knowledge of the technology. But their Trusted Service Provider status goes beyond that; we are truly focused on the end user experience and doing everything we can to make measurement campaigns work. The Measurement Services Team have proven this time and time again and embody everything a ZephIR Trusted Service Provider is, and does.”
