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

Wind Measurement Services

Excellence in measurements and project data for wind energy development.

We are ZX Measurement Services

Our experienced team is now a global leader in the design, installation and management of wind, site and project measurement systems.

We ensure all measurement campaigns are designed and delivered to exactly meet our customers needs whilst optimising new and existing technologies to provide comprehensive data sets.

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

We can provide and support a range of equipment including onshore wind Lidars and Sodars, offshore wind Lidars and nacelle-based Lidars.

Our Products Include

ZX 300, ZX 300M and ZX TM

from ZX Lidars

AQ500, AQ510

from AQSystem

WindCube v1, v2 and offshore variants

from Vaisala / Leosphere

Ground-based, vertical profiling wind sensor

Access to low cost, accurate and reliable measurements from industry-leading wind Lidars without the initial capital outlay or cost of equipment ownership.

All wind Lidars are the industry-leading ZX 300 from ZX Lidars with optimised processing for improved wind data quality control, are subject to full IEC classification and are accepted by DNV GL as a Stage 3 bankable device. Lidars can be made available at very short notice (subject to availability) and come
fully configured based on your measurement requirements. Combine our Lidar Rental with our power, communications and security for a full turn-key wind measurement campaign.

Lidar Applications

Wind resource assessment (standalone or complimentary to Met mast)

Energy yield assessment

Met mast verification

Turbine micro-siting

Crane lift monitoring

Wind monitoring during noise assessment

Model uncertainty reduction

Crane lift monitoring

Wind turbine power performance testing

Nacelle-based, horizontal profiling wind Lidar sensor

Access to low cost, accurate and reliable nacelle-based wind measurements from industry-leading wind Lidars, without the initial capital outlay or cost of equipment ownership.

All Lidars are the industry-leading ZX TM units with full turbine rotor scanning capacity (bottom tip, hub height and top tip) and are at most 2 years from new at the time of installation. Systems are fully factory calibrated, verified and ready for deployment. Lidars can be made available at very short notice (subject to availability) and come fully configured based on your measurement requirements. Quickly assess wind turbine performance without the need for a met mast or without being solely reliant on turbine SCADA data.

Lidar Applications

Turbine Supply Agreement Power Curve warranty measurements

Operational power curve and Yaw performance

Turbine performance uncertainty reduction

Turbine performance degradation checks

Turbine upgrade verification

Static and Dynamic Yaw correction

Wind farm lidar control for wakes

Support for your Lidars and Sodars

ZX Measurement Services offer a full Remote Sensing Device (RSD) fleet management service effectively removing the need to dedicate any internal resource to RSD system management, operation and servicing.

This ensures your fleet of Lidar’s and Sodar’s is fully checked, configured and ready for deployment when not on-site and each device is fully optimised with maximum data availability when on-site.
