With the purchase of a ZephIR 300 Pondera will soon start with its first wind measurement campaign. The ZephIR 300 is a Lidar: a device which measures the wind speed at various heights using laser beams. Wind measurements at the project location are an increasingly important part of a thorough wind resource assessment and are often indispensable in obtaining project financing.
In the coming period, the Lidar will first be used to improve the yield forecast of a wind farm in the North of the Netherlands. Pondera is happy with the purchase and hopes to be able to carry out many successful measurement campaigns in the coming years.
