Robust low cost offshore power curve tests with lidar Robust low cost offshore power curve tests with lidar

21 August 2 - 3pm BST

Join SgurrEnergy’s Peter Clive for this exciting new webinar!

Lidar is transforming the way the wind power industry measures the wind, and one key example where the benefit is felt is in power performance assessment offshore.

Power curve tests compare wind resource with the power generated by a wind turbine using that resource. They are necessary for checking the performance of wind turbines. The challenge associated with conducting these tests offshore arises due to the relatively high cost of acquiring the necessary wind data compared to onshore circumstances. The high cost offshore can mean tests are not conducted even though
• relatively novel turbine technology,
• high levels of investment and
• less well understood conditions
make the need for these tests more rather than less urgent.

Lidar is providing us with measurement opportunities that were not previously available. New methods are being developed to catch up with these possibilities. The risks offshore mean we can’t afford to ignore the opportunities made possible by lidar. These new opportunities are broadening the scope of the tests themselves: rather than being prohibitively expensive, offshore power curve tests can be low cost; rather than being exceptional, undertaking them can be routine; rather than being a one off warranty test, they can become an integral part of a strategy for securing successful offshore wind farm operations throughout their entire lifecycle.

This webinar will review industry experience and case studies that illustrate these methods and will discuss guidelines and procedures that are available to support their adoption and implementation.

23-24 September

SgurrEnergy is delighted to be sponsoring REFF Europe 2014, now in it’s 16th anniversary year. The event will be held this year in Dublin’s historic castle and the discussions are set to be equally interesting.

The event will pinpoint where the investment is coming from and which regions and industrial segments it is currently targeting, in addition to covering policy chance and focusing on different ways to obtain finance. The presentations and networking opportunities are not to be missed.

We would be pleased to speak with you at the event!
