Fugro achieves Carbon Trust’s highest rating for its SEAWATCH LiDAR buoy
Fugro’s SEAWATCH® Wind Lidar Buoy has achieved the highest commercial maturity rating, Stage 3, in accordance with the Carbon Trust Roadmap for the Commercial Acceptance of floating LiDAR technology. Fugro’s floating LiDAR system is the first in the world to gain this Stage 3 rating, which certifies the SEAWATCH Wind Lidar Buoy as a primary source of wind resource data to support financial investment decisions for offshore wind farms.
Independent third-party evaluation by DNV verified Fugro’s SEAWATCH® Wind Lidar Buoy as meeting the highest standards of data availability for commercial offshore wind campaigns. Data accuracy consistently met industry best-practice criteria in verification trials and, in addition, wind speed measurements in classification trials gave consistent results for sensitivity to environmental variables.
