WINDCUBEv2 Offshore

The WINDCUBE® v2 Offshore is the most flexible and cost effective solution to measure accurately the wind components up to 200m on any offshore fixed platform. Specially dedicated to marine environment, it offers a highly reliable solution in complement or replacement to traditional masts.

REDUCE CAPITAL EXPENDITURES
Accurate, easy to deploy, and affordable equipment is needed to measure the wind on stable or moving platforms located several kilometers from the shore. Installations of offshore met mats on large and heavy platforms require large vessels, weeks of work by highly trained technicians and engineers, and calm sea conditions. This costs millions and is dramatically time consuming in a wind farm project. The reduction of capital costs required for assessing the wind resource offshore with high accuracy at modern hub heights has therefore become a critical challenge for the offshore wind industry. A LIDAR remote sensor integrated on a stable platform or buoy is the most cost effective and optimized solution currently available.
