Vermont, United States [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] NRG Systems has commissioned a Windcube lidar remote sensor in Alberta, Canada, it’s first in an extreme cold weather envronment. The lidar remote sensor is used in wind farm site assessment and performance monitoring. It provides 200-meter vertical wind profiles – mapping wind speed, direction, turbulence and wind shear.
Genivar, a Canadian engineering and consulting services firm has been trained by NRG Systems on the installation and use of the Windcube and is now offering a Windcube to its North American clients through a leasing arrangement.
“We’re pleased to partner with Genivar on this important effort,” said Barton Merle-Smith, NRG Systems director of marketing and sales. “Improving accuracy and reliability of wind resource assessment in remote areas, particularly arctic climates, will further the deployment of clean wind energy.”
