The company said this will be the fist time that floating Lidar systems with two sensors have been deployed at an offshore site. The systems are Axys WindSentinel floating Lidar that have been fitted with an additional Zephir 300 sensor.

The systems will be deployed in the North Sea, three nautical miles off the coast of Blyth, Northumberland, for a one-month validation and research study at the ORE Catapult’s National Renewable Energy Centre.

A met mast at the Blyth site will be used to validate the systems' performance. They will then be moved to France for a 12-month campaign as part of an energy assessment for two commercial wind farms.

This is the fist time that Axys has used the Zephir 300 sensor.
