Oldbaum and Leosphere announce 1GW of offshore wind data campaigns underway at French sites

Oldbaum Services has deployed two 3D WINDCUBE 400S Scanning LiDARs as part of the wind resource assessment campaigns the company is currently conducting at two French offshore wind sites. It is the first time that such long range scanning systems are deployed for operational campaigns, after having successfully completed third party validation tests with DTU and DNV GL. Oldbaum’s work will contribute significantly to making best use of the wind resource available at both locations to reduce the costs associated with offshore wind development.

Oldbaum provides wind data interpretation and consultancy services that efficiently complement Leosphere’s scanning LiDAR, allowing Oldbaum to design and implement cost effective wind resource assessment campaigns to establish the offshore wind regime from onshore for future wind farms as well as optimise their layout design. The instrumentation Oldbaum selected for the job includes the 3D WINDCUBE 400S Scanning LiDAR from Leosphere, which is able to scan hemispherically up to a distance of 10 km. It scans the wind out to sea, providing Oldbaum with a comprehensive picture of the wind resource available at both sites, returning data using low risk cost effective measurements. The reconstruction of the wind was based on Leosphere’s in-house algorithm recently validated by DNV GL.
