In a competitive tender, EOLOS has secured contracts to deploy the EOLOS FLS200 floating Lidar. Purposely designed for the offshore industry, the EOLOS FLS200 incorporates the leading ZephIR 300M wind Lidar ensuring the highest levels of accuracy in wind measurements. Requiring minimum time for installation and re-deployment the floating device provides cost effectiveness in both projects CAPEX and OPEX.
The campaigns commence November 2018 and wind measurements will last for two years. Data collected shall support the development of the un-disclosed wind farm with a capacity of over 1 GW.
“This combined with our project experience in the Western Europe, industry-recognized validation by The Carbon Trust complements our plans to expand into both U.S. and Asia with a credible track record,” said Sales Director Julian Harland. “That said, organic growth is key for me in the near term and execution performance is the team’s priority, the rewards of which should raise our profile for the remaining pipeline of consented projects in the region.“
The FLS200 is fully equipped to gather combined wind, wave, and current information. The on-board ZephIR 300M provides detailed wind information from deck level and remotely up to 200m above the buoy. The Lidar remains the single most proven device in the offshore market on both fixed and floating platforms having been first deployed in 2005.
“It goes to show how targeted funding, academia and industry can bring excellent products to market. The EOLOS team has worked very hard to deliver an excellent service to its Customers and I am confident that there will be many more FLS200 deployments in the future and they are a great team to work with,” said Matt Smith, Offshore Specialist at ZephIR Lidar. “Personally, I am always pleased to see the benefits of ZephIR 300M being realised by a wind measurement provider and their customer.”
