AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS) ) is very pleased to have joined the Norwegian Centre for Offshore Wind Energy (NORCOWE) to further the shared goal of developing innovative and cost-efficient offshore wind solutions for deep waters and harsh offshore environments. Through joining this consortium, AXYS looks forward to collaborating with the other NORCOWE partners to conduct research and development focused on reducing costs and increasing efficiencies of offshore wind development. Specific areas of common interest include R&D initiatives that will explore the use of floating LiDAR to measure turbulence intensity, test power performance, trial & validate novel measurement systems, and develop environmental baselines.

AXYS has recently deployed its’ market leading dual LiDAR WindSentinel buoy next to the FINO1 standard mast to perform validation studies and learn more about wind/wave interactions, microwave temperature profilers, and O&M decision support applications over the next 4-6 months.

“AXYS is committed to developing new offshore wind energy solutions which address real-world Wind Energy operational problems and we are delighted to have partnered with NORCOWE and its’ industry leading partner companies to participate in these important R&D initiatives in the sector,” comments Terry Tarle, CEO & President of AXYS.

“NORCOWE is pleased to welcome AXYS as a new partner in the centre,” says Kristin Guldbrandsen Frøysa, Director at NORCOWE. “Met/ocean measurements have been a major topic within NORCOWE from the beginning in 2009. With AXYS joining NORCOWE, our measurement capacity is strengthened even more. We are pleased that a WindSentinel is included in the current OBLEX-F1 campaign. AXYS helps addressing the need for versatile offshore measurement platforms, to meet the challenges from the offshore wind industry for comprehensive measurements of wind and temperature profiles, waves and currents. By bringing together scientists, vendors and wind farm operators, NORCOWE bridges the gap between science and industry. We are pleased to see that offshore wind companies acknowledge this by joining NORCOWE.”
