Windar to supply sensors to The Carbon Trust

Thursday, 7th December 2017
Windar Photonics has been selected as the LiDAR supplier to a new multimillion euro project launched as part of The Carbon Trust's offshore wind accelerator programme in the UK.

Windar will supply eight WindEYE sensors to be installed on offshore turbines as part of The Carbon Trust's €2.3 million wind farm control trials (WFCT), designed to demonstrate how effective implementation of control strategies can reduce the cost of offshore wind.

The project - backed by EnBW, E.ON, innogy, Statoil and Vattenfall - will investigate the impact of focusing on strategies that aim to improve energy generation across an entire wind farm, rather than individual turbines and help to lower the levelised cost of energy (LCoE).

The WFCT intends to demonstrate a lower LCoE by increasing the total wind energy yield and reducing fatigue, thus saving operational and maintenance costs while also increasing the availability and lifetime of existing and future assets.

The WCFT is expected to be undertaken in 2018 with full results expected during 2019.

At 9:00am: (LON:WPHO) Windar Photonics Plc share price was +5.5p at 110p
