Fugro’s SEAWATCH wind Lidar buoy geo-data to support Vietnam’s renewable energy transition
Fugro and PTSC G&S, a lead provider of diversified technical services for energy and other industries in Vietnam and South-East Asia, have signed a contract with Enterprize Energy Group to supply, install and operate a SEAWATCH Wind Lidar Buoy at Vietnam’s Thang Long Offshore Wind Farm site. From July 2021, the device will record continuous measurements for an initial period of 1 year to support wind resource mapping.
The buoy will use Fugro’s SEAWATCH Wavescan Buoy platform, which has integrated ZX 300M lidar, and will record wind measurements up to 300 m above sea level. Fugro and PTSC G&S will provide monthly Geo-data reports to support the validation of the area’s wind resources. The buoy will also capture a suite of metocean Geo-data, including air pressure, humidity, air and water temperature, wave height and full-column current measurements, to support the future wind farm’s engineering and design.
