Deployments of floating LiDAR systems

The Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) has published a repository of floating LiDAR deployments to date.

Deployments of floating lidar systems report cover


Floating LiDAR technology has been identified as a potential replacement for conventional meteorological masts, which have been the main technology used for wind resource assessments of proposed offshore wind farms to date. A floating LiDAR system (FLS) offers significant benefits when compared to an offshore meteorological mast, including cost reduction and the flexibility of being redeployed at different locations.
