UK-based Offshore Wind Consultants (OWC) and German company Multiversum have entered a partnership to provide pre-construction offshore wind measurement services as well as specific advice on fixed and floating LiDAR measurements. L-R: Patrick Schwenk, Project Engineer (OWC), John MacAskill, business development director (OWC), Jakob Grimm, Managing Consultant (Multiversum) and Anne-Katrin Hagel, Associate Partner (Multiversum)“Traditional metocean measurement towers are insufficient to protect the profit margins of modern offshore wind farm developments. At the same time, wind farms must reduce their costs in order to remain competitive,” said John MacAskill, business development director of Offshore Wind Consultants Limited (OWC).“Floating LiDAR technology is established within the offshore sector, offering reliable recording of location-specific data on site, at significantly lower costs. However, there is room for improvement of the correct interpretation and ultimate exploitation of this data. The combination of OWC and Multiversum’s expertise provides a solution to this challenge,” said Detlef Stein, Multiversum’s LiDAR expert.OWC and Multiversum will also focus on services across other phases of offshore wind farm projects, including pre-feasibility, project development, wind farm erection and ongoing offshore maintenance.
