SGRE unveils ZX Lidars technology on 14MW flagship offshore turbine

Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) unveils ZX Lidars technology on 14MW flagship offshore wind turbine.

Nacelle-based Lidar-assisted turbine technology to support world beating wind projects

Siemens Gamesa has released details of new wind Lidar technology now installed on the company’s SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbine. The ‘ZX TM’ Continuous Wave Lidar system has been integrated by the WTG OEM and is now a standard option for the turbine allowing for a fully IEC compliant power curve measurement to be undertaken without the need for a met mast. In addition, this Lidar’s unique ability to see the wind ahead of the turbine across 50 points distributed across the whole rotor unlocks additional value throughout the lifetime of the turbine, optimising customer assets offshore based on the wind conditions observed on site.

Ever increasing rotor diameters require appropriate measurement systems that ‘see’ and characterise the wind shear and veer – the change in wind speed and wind direction – across the rotor swept area. The 14MW Siemens Gamesa turbine is one of the largest on the market with a 222-rotor diameter, and the company are taking a leadership position in applying innovation and proven technology, such as Continuous Wave wind Lidar, to meet their goals of decarbonising energy and achieving Net Zero in the industry.

In an ongoing collaboration between WTG and Lidar OEMs Siemens Gamesa and ZX Lidars, this Lidar solution is fully-approved and validated and supports the release of the state-of-the-art SGRE turbine, now operational at the Østerild Wind Turbine Test Field, Denmark.
