ZX Lidars, sowento Partner on Turbine Innovation Initiative


ZX Lidars and sowento have embarked on a new Lidar Assisted Control initiative, with the goal of supporting turbine innovation.

Building on their ReLACs project collaboration, ZX Lidars and sowento have embarked on a partnership to demonstrate the benefits of ZX Continuous Wave Lidars for Lidar Assisted Control (LAC). 

The initiative will explore the commercial gains that LAC needs to provide, the ways in which ZX CW solutions can meet those gains and the robustness and sensitivity of the predicted ZX CW LAC cost-benefit, says the company. The defined project scope will cover a broad range of turbine segments including onshore, offshore and floating turbine systems.

“ZX is investing to help our industry advance in areas where real and tangible benefits can be made to reduce the levelized cost of energy of wind farms – be that improving turbine capability and performance, increasing project life, or optimizing annual production,” says ZX’s Steven White. “We are very pleased to be working with our friends at sowento again to maximize the outcome of this important Lidar Assisted Control initiative.”
