LiDAR becoming top choice as measurement tool for offshore wind sites

By Michelle Froese At a recent seminar hosted by Leosphere at the Offshore Wind Conference 2017, top wind measurement experts explained that years of successful LiDAR validation campaigns. LiDARs have been replacing met masts to become the sole wind measurement tool used for offshore resource assessment and power-curve verification purposes.
LiDAR technology is proving its ability to provide wind measurements as reliably as met masts. Experts claim LiDARs are typically faster, easier, and cheaper to deploy, enabling significant development and operational cost reductions.
The strong competitiveness of these devices have led industry leaders to choose this technology over met masts for offshore wind feasibility studies,
