ESCO Technologies subsidiary NRG Systems has acquired a portfolio of lidar technologies for wind profile measurement from Israeli company Pentalum.
Pentalum patented its Direct Detect remote sensing technology for precise lidar-based wind measurement, at a lower cost than conventional Doppler lidar. Its SpiDAR Vertical Wind Profiler is in use on five continents for windfarm analysis and other purposes, including installations at small and remote airports.
The portable SpiDAR measures the wind profile from 20 m up to 200 m and is available for onshore and on fixed platforms offshore.
