Ledbury, UK — Wind lidar technology innovation company ZephIR Lidar is proud to announce the release of a fully-marinised wind lidar – ZephIR 300M – for the offshore wind and meteorological industries, founded on the company’s successful and finance-approved remote wind measurement device, ZephIR 300.
ZephIR is the single most experienced lidar operating offshore with extensive global offshore deployments across a 10 year track record including: the world’s first wind lidar to be used on a fixed platform; the world’s first wind lidar to be used on a floating platform; the first wind lidar to be accepted as DNV GL Stage 3 ‘bankable’ on a fixed platform, and; the world’s first wind lidar to be deployed as standard in dual configuration on a buoy for resource assessment.
ZephIR has been selected by over 90% of all floating platform installations due to the unique properties this continuous wave lidar technology has to provide including range of measurements (10 – 200 metres from installed height), the fast data rate of 50Hz leading to natural resistance to the motion found offshore completely removing the need for mechanical motion compensation in most environments and its proven reliability offshore.
Building on an already impressive list of offshore experience, today, ZephIR Lidar releases ZephIR 300M designed specifically for use offshore and includes as standard:
- A 3 year warranty and 3 year service life – the most extensive available from a remote sensing device that can be used offshore
- Optimised industrial design including high UV stability housing, highest grade of marine connectors, marine MET station for improved yaw determination
- Upgraded cooling and air movement system offering IP68 protection
ZephIR 300M provides 10 metre to 200 metre wind measurements ideal for site resource assessment offshore, power curve measurements and bankable Annual Energy Prediction (AEP) campaigns at the lowest cost of finance-grade lidar ownership available with no requirement for annual servicing or calibration within the 3 year service period.
