Windar receives order for five LiDAR systems

Wed, 6th Dec 2017 15:54

(ShareCast News) - Wind sensor technology group Windar Photonics has received an order for five LiDAR systems from a Chinese original equipment manufacturer for immediate delivery, it announced on Wednesday.

The AIM-traded firm said the orders were for a mix of both its 'WindEye' and 'WindVision' LiDAR systems.

It explained that the LiDAR systems are intended to be integrated directly for general turbine optimisation.

The integration of the LiDAR reportedly enables the wind turbine to optimise the annually-generated power, and at the same time reduce the general turbine load whereby the lifespan of the wind turbine could be enhanced.

Windar said the integration and turbine optimisation would take advantage both its capabilities of measuring wind speed and wind direction, as well as the recently-added additional feature of wind shear detection, and wake and turbulence detection.

"I am very pleased with this new order and despite knowing it does take a considerable amount of time from starting such new test projects to final turbine platform design wins and volume orders, it is important to continue to grow the number of these projects to support our long term growth expectations," said Windar chief executive Jørgen Korsgaard Jensen.

"With this latest order we now have either completed or are currently conducting test projects with the majority of both top 10 and top 20 global OEM manufactures.

"Some of these existing projects have been ongoing for several years, and based on test results we do expect to achieve major and all-important turbine platform design wins to substantially transform our activity and revenue levels."
