Windar sells another five WindEYE sensor systems

By Josh White

Date: Monday 26 Jun 2017

LONDON (ShareCast) - (ShareCast News) - LiDAR wind sensor technology developer Windar Photonics announced a new order for five 'WindEYE' sensors from an unnamed Mexican independent power producer on Monday.
The AIM-traded firm said the order was for five 'WindEYE' wind sensor units, which were scheduled for immediate delivery, falling late in the second quarter.

It said the 'WindEYE' LiDAR units were to be integrated with five Vestas V112 wind turbines using Windar's 'WindTimizer' integration solution.

The ordered LiDAR sensors were intended for an optimisation project, where the company's board said the focus was on using the sensors to increase the annual energy production from the wind turbine generators.

It explained that the control system integration enabled the wind turbine to be aligned to the incoming wind with a "high degree of accuracy", increasing the annually-generated power by between 1% and 3%, and enhancing the lifespan of the wind turbine, as damaging loads affecting the wind turbine were reduced.

"I am pleased to announce the new order; not least due to the potential for additional orders for more LiDARs for the specific wind turbine site, which is planned to be extended to more than 1GW of capacity over the coming year," said Windar CEO Jørgen Korsgaard Jensen.

"Based on our surveying of the site, even minimal annual energy production improvements of 1% constitutes a very attractive business case for rolling out the LiDAR sensors on all turbines on this site.

"With the recently announced orders, including the order from the Mexican IPP, Windar is on track to deliver a high double digit growth rate for the first six months of 2017, both concerning total order intake and revenue for the period."
