FLiDAR_small_web

Cost-effective, accurate, offshore wind measurements

The FLiDAR floating LiDAR is an offshore meteorological station designed for marine renewable energy technologies. FLiDAR can measure wind potential up to 200m above mean sea level with an accuracy equivalent to the performance of onshore measurement devices.

  • First validated and commercially deployed floating LiDAR device in the world
  • Fast design and manufacture
  • Reduced O&M time and cost
  • Highly accurate
  • Proven survivability

The FLiDAR device is built, deployed and serviced by FLiDAR N.V., a joint venture established in August 2012 between 3E and OWA (offshore wind contractor, daughter company of DEME group), with technology from Leosphere.

FLIDAR was sold to AXYS on 04/09/2015 to support its international growth outside the European Union.


XANT

Robust, medium-size wind turbine for off-grid, hybrid and remote applications
