RWE Innogy testing second metocean buoy after promising first trial

RWE Innogy, in partnership with the operator of Eneco Luchterduinen offshore wind farm, has successfully completed the trial of an innovative offshore buoy for measuring wind and wave data in the Netherlands. The floating measuring platform demonstrably fulfilled the requirements with regard to availability and accuracy. For the purpose of testing further technical configurations with various manufacturers, an additional floating LiDAR was installed off the Dutch coast mid-March. The research project’s objective is to develop a cost-effective alternative to fixed met masts. Floating LiDAR systems are expected to only cost 10 to 20 percent of a conventional measuring mast, indicating huge potential to make a considerable contribution to cutting development costs of offshore wind farms.more
