Vestas has deployed three ZephIR 300 LIDAR systems at the 420 MW Macarthur Wind Farm in Australia. According to ZephIR, the systems will provide hub height and full rotor wind speed measurements across the project site, which already contains six traditional 84-meter met masts.

The ZephIR LIDARs will take wind measurements from 10 to 200 meters high to assist load-analysis calculations for the 140 3 MW Vestas V112 wind turbines, as well as to inform turbine-warranty conditions.

“ZephIR LIDAR gives Vestas flexibility on a large site, such as Macarthur,” comments Peter Giang, project manager at Vestas Australian Wind Technology. “It would be difficult from a development-application perspective to use traditional masts across the entire site to collect the data we require for our turbine calculations and to inform warranty conditions on the site. ZephIR provided an efficient way that we require.”
