Onshore LIDAR measurements

Fraunhofer IWES conducts Lidar measurement campaigns for wind resource assessments. Lidar systems allow ground based remote sensing of wind speed and direction in several heights up to 200 m without need for a measurement mast - this saves money and time in project development.

The service range comprises planning, execution and analysis of Lidar wind measurement campaigns with a Leosphere Windcube v2 Lidar system. For specific applications the Galion G-4000 Scanning Lidar with up to 4000 m measurement range is available.

Highest data quality is ensured by verification according to IEC 61400-12-1 from accredited measurement institutes. An autonomous power supply allows measurements at sites without grid connection.  

  • Ground-based wind measurements in multiple heights up to 200 m without mast
  • Suitable for resource assessment, e.g. according to the German TR6 guideline
  • Full service contract offered: from campaign planning to data analysis
