Fugro Debuts Buoy Mounted LiDAR

Friday, February 14, 2014

Fugro’s Seawatch LiDAR buoy provides a cost-effective way to collect metocean data for offshore wind farm developments Successful trial results of the next generation of multi-purpose buoys tailored for the renewable energy industry have led to recent orders from operators in the wind energy sector. Dutch energy company Eneco has purchased Fugro’s new wind LiDAR buoy while a Japanese company is to deploy its buoy close to a floating power generation system.
Fugro recently developed an accurate and cost-effective alternative to the traditional method of wind profile measurements for offshore wind farms. In January 2014 Fugro’s SEAWATCH wind LiDAR buoy was deployed 75 km off the coast of Ijmuiden in The Netherlands where wind data will be compared with data from three levels on a met mast at the site, together with data from a LiDAR mounted on the mast. This testing will enhance a field trial which took place off the coast of Norway in spring, 2012.
