Axys Flidar passes 10th test
System completes two more validation campaigns by DNV GL
Axys Technologies has completed another two validation campaigns for its floating lidar Flidar 6M offshore wind assessment platform.
Axys said it is the ninth and 10th independently reviewed offshore validations undertaken by the company to advance the commercial acceptance of the technology.
The latest validation campaigns undertaken by DNV GL took place at Fino 1 in the North Sea and at West of Duddon Sands in the Irish Sea.
Axys said the work adds 11 more months of validation data to the company’s database.
It said both validation campaigns achieved over 98% data availability through harsh winter storm conditions while meeting or exceeding the accuracy standards established by the Carbon Trust offshore wind accelerator roadmap.
DNV GL global head of practice for resource measurements Detlef Stein said: “DNV GL has carried out numerous independent validations of Axys’ Flidar systems over the past three years.
“Axys’ Flidar systems have consistently provided high data availability and accuracy under a wide range of harsh environmental conditions.”
