ZephIR 300 – Onshore Wind Lidar

Home » Product » ZephIR 300 – Onshore Wind Lidar

ZephIR 300: Hub height wind measurements reduce the risk of, and increase the value of onshore wind energy projects.

Onshore wind lidar measurements typically deliver a £320,000 increase on the value of a project through more accurate Annual Energy Prediction (AEP) when compared to a 80m met mast on a 20 MW onshore wind farm – The Ecofys position on LiDAR use.

ZephIR 300 wind lidar is used extensively through the pre-planning / scoping, planning, development, construction and operational phases of an onshore wind energy project in combination with short met masts and tall met masts and associated cup anemometers, roaming during site-prospecting, stand-alone in replacement of a met mast and as a fixed reference control.

With our extensive experience in the industry, we are able to support you with a range of Support Packages designed to make remote wind measurement and data collection both simple and user-friendly.
