Ørsted Launches AXYS Technologies’ FLiDAR Buoy to Assess Offshore Conditions for Ocean Wind Project in New Jersey

Ørsted, the global leader in offshore wind and the developer of Ocean Wind – an offshore wind farm to be located 10 miles off the coast of Atlantic City – announced today the deployment of a specialized buoy designed to measure wind and wave conditions.

The AXYS FLiDAR WindSentinel is a floating LiDAR solution that will measure wind speed and direction to help determine the best locations and positions for wind turbines on the federally leased area.

“We are pleased to partner with AXYS Technologies and utilize their innovative technology to retrieve mission critical data,” said Thomas Brostrøm, President, Ørsted North America. “This is another important milestone for the project that will bring us closer to having the first utility scale offshore wind farm in New Jersey.”

Floating LiDAR is an innovative technology that integrates a LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) on a moored buoy to provide accurate and reliable data on wind speed, wind direction, and turbulence at turbine hub-height. The AXYS FLiDAR WindSentinel buoy is also outfitted with a range of other sensors to measure surface wind speed and direction, directional waves, ocean currents, tide, salinity, water temperature, atmospheric pressure and air temperature, all of which help give a comprehensive data set of environmental conditions useful for wind resource assessment, turbine siting and contract management data, and site weather character development. The AXYS FLiDAR WindSentinel operates autonomously is powered by its own renewable energy system.

Technical experts from both companies were on hand at the event to provide information about the Ocean Wind project as well as the FLiDAR WindSentinel buoy, which was launched out of Gardner’s Basin in Atlantic City.

“AXYS Technologies is delighted to work with the Ocean Wind team to support the development phase of their project,” said PS Reilly, AXYS President & CEO. “This FLiDAR WindSentinel system will provide them with reliable and accurate data that will help to ensure project success.”
