USA: AXYS Secures WindSentinel Supply Contract

AXYS Technologies (AXYS) has been awarded a supply contract by an Eastern United States energy company for WindSentinel floating LiDAR system. The system will be used as part of a research and development project supporting offshore wind generation.

“One of the key objectives of this project is demonstrate how wind power can be generated offshore in the United states at a cost comparable to conventional generation sources,” says Chad MacIsaac, International Accounts Manager at AXYS. “AXYS is pleased to support this objective by the application of floating LiDAR technology, which reduces the cost of offshore wind resource assessment by a factor of ten.”

The WindSentinel is expected to be deployed in the first quarter of 2015 and will gather comprehensive wind speed and wind direction data up to heights of 200m, along with metocean data including directional waves, ocean currents, tide, salinity, water temperature, atmospheric pressure and air temperature. This data will help the project stakeholders to understand the wind resource available at the proposed development location and lay the ground work for future offshore wind development at a commercial scale in the region.
