Rental of measurement technology (wind measurement masts and LiDAR)

Measuring the wind

Over 30 LiDAR devices. Measurements in over 10 countries around the globe. We rent you current devices to perform wind measurements.

Remote sensing devices (RSD) are measuring devices that measure the wind vector at various heights above the ground. Both the horizontal and the vertical components of the wind are recorded. The devices measure from 10 to 40 metres above ground up to approx. 200 metres above the device. The recording is carried out by the intensity of a laser beam (LiDAR) or a sound wave (SODAR) that is backscattered by particles in the air. By determining the Doppler shift, the wind speed vector can be calculated from its components.

Informative and standard-compliant documentation with all the required details ensures the quality of the data, its reliable usability and thus its value as a basis for project financing. We provide this for both conventional mast measurements and also with RSD (LiDAR/SoDAR).

LiDAR devices are usually installed in trailers and operated with a self-sufficient power supply based on a solar-powered battery buffer. Based on a solar-powered battery buffer storage. In the winter months, this power supply is supported by a fuel cell system based on methanol.
