Measuring wind in complex terrain can be difficult.

In complex terrain you're quickly out of the range of standards, and it's not easy to put masts up.

Use our wind lidar expertise to get the data you need quickly and safely. We provide results that are easy to understand and actionable.

Every situation is different

Getting the best data means understanding why data are needed. We work with you to make sure that a measurement campaign can deliver those results. That could mean using models for post-processing, using scanning lidar instead of profilers, and many other options.

We know what can be done

We keep up to date with the latest R&D, best practices, and standards to find out what’s possible and what’s acceptable to investors. We work with all of the lidar vendors and leading specialists to implement solutions designed for your needs.

We’re also active members of the Consortium for the Advancement of Remote Sensing (CFARS), we contribute to the groups that develop International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards, and are regular participants in the German Fördergesellschaft Windenergie (FGW). We’ve also led international wind lidar collaborations through IEA Wind Task 32 on wind lidar, and are now leading the digitalisation activities in the new IEA Wind Task 52, “Large-scale deployment of wind lidar”.

Our experts are well-placed to help you make confident steps with wind lidar.
