Vattenfall deploys ZX 300 wind lidars for wind development in GermanyAdvancing a portfolio of new wind development opportunities in Germany, Vattenfall has confirmed the deployment of a fleet of ground-based ZX 300 wind Lidars for wind resource assessments.
 
These Lidars remotely determine wind characteristics, including wind speed, from ground level up to 300 meters. The fleet of ZX 300 units will undergo validation against the tallest available meteorological masts at local Remote Sensing Test Sites in Germany, operated by Pavana. They will be utilised to support technical guidance outlined in 'TR6', published by the German FGW, which describes processes for assessing wind potential and energy yield at wind turbine sites. The guideline emphasises wind measurement methods, encompassing meteorological masts, Sodar, and Lidar devices. ZX 300 has been accepted and approved for use within TR6. In support of Vattenfall, ZX Lidars’ Trusted Service Provider, Ge:Net, will provide autonomous power supplies and mobility solutions to facilitate Lidar-based wind measurement campaigns.
