Current wind measurement techniques used for the planning and development of wind parks, including the exploration of possible locations are often cumbersome and expensive.

“Traditional metocean measurement towers are insufficient to protect the profit margins of modern offshore wind farm developments. At the same time, wind farms must reduce their costs in order to remain competitive,” says John MacAskill, business development director of Offshore Wind Consultants Limited (OWC). 

As a result, OWC and Multiversum have joined forces to offer pre-construction offshore wind measurement services as well as specific advice on fixed and floating LiDAR (light detection and ranging) measurements. The partnership’s objective is to offer developers and investors more robust wind measurement data to enable optimal planning of wind parks, when it comes to both capex and opex.

“Floating LiDAR technology is established within the offshore sector, offering reliable recording of location-specific data on site, at significantly lower costs. However, there is room for improvement of the correct interpretation and ultimate exploitation of this data. The combination of OWC and Multiversum’s expertise provides a solution to this challenge,” says Detlef Stein, Multiversum’s LiDAR expert.

The partnership will also offer wind measurement services across other phases of offshore wind farm projects, including pre-feasibility, project development, wind farm erection and ongoing offshore maintenance.

OWC, headquartered in London, UK, is a globally focused consultancy providing independent services to the offshore renewables industry. The company is part of Oslo-listed energy consultancy group Aqualis ASA.

Multiversum is an independent consultancy firm with offices in Hamburg and Munich, Germany.
