AXYS Technologies Inc. has deployed one of its WindSentinel Land Stations on a man-made island at the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay in the Mid-Atlantic as part of a project headed by WeatherFlow Inc. Funded by the Virginia Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund, the project is focused on developing a wind monitoring and forecasting system for offshore wind energy.

The Vindicator III LiDAR, packaged in the WindSentinel Land Station, has already been deployed for a field-verification period next to a tall met mast at Stumpy Point, N.C. AXYS says the solution is now deployed on a small island that is part of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel complex for a period of up to a year to validate and improve WeatherFlow’s wind forecasting models.

Steve Woll, WeatherFlow’s director of business development, says, “With no measurements currently available in the coastal zone at wind turbine rotor heights, we’re looking forward to using the WindSentinel’s data to better capture the highly variable features of the coastal wind regime.”
