Windar Photonics PLC (LON:WPHO) has secured a repeat order for its WindEye LiDAR wind sensors from a large wind farm owner and operator in the US after the technology impressed first time around.

The five new units are expected to be installed on Suzlon S88 2.1 MW wind turbines and will be integrated into the turbines’ control systems to help increase efficiencies.

“We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with this major US utility, and we are pleased that the previously ordered LiDAR units performed according to expectations,” said chief executive Jørgen Korsgaard.

The WindEye LiDAR sensors measure wind speed and direction while the blowing winds are still miles away from the blades.

Knowing where the wind is going to come from allows the turbines to prepare and adapt, increasing power and reducing stress on vital components.
