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
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.
Wind resource assessment (standalone or complimentary to Met mast)
Energy yield assessment
Met mast verification
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.

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.
Lidar configuration and operational checks pre-installation
Transportation to and from the installation site
System installation and operation
Provision of associated hardware including PSU and security fencing
Arranging and overseeing routine servicing and maintenance
ZX 300 and ZX 300M vertical profiling Lidars
