Offshore Permanent Met Lidar
Support an offshore met mast during maintenance or in replacement should the mast need removing.
ZX 300M provides low 10m measurements through to tip height and above, and can be SCADA / grid integrated providing a new standard in operational wind measurements.
Remove the need to work at height actively working towards industry Health & Safety best practice.
Measurements from 10m to 200m provide correlations to existing anemometry at all heights.
More accurately apply curtailment strategies / wind sector management.
Undertake measurements in the case of either turbine / turbine component or power loss on site in support of any insurance claims.
Improve the accuracy of the forecasting model may be used for energy trading, access / egress or planned maintenance forecasting used to reduce Waiting on Weather downtime.
With 1-second Quality Controlled data, a live feed from a permanently installed Lidar may be used to inform transport movements, for example helicopter lifts and craning.
With an almost real-time, accurate shear profile, any airborne movements around site can be conducted more efficiently and allow operators to work with a higher level of certainty within their internally approved safety windows for these operations.
