New order is for an offshore wind farm

Windar Photonics PLC (LON:WPHO) has won a new order for 15 of its LiDAR wind turbine tracking units from a new distributor in China focused on independent power producers.

Most of this order will go into an off-shore wind park to be integrated directly into the wind turbine control system. The LiDAR Windeye sensor units are expected to be delivered in the second quarter.

The new distributor has close links to power groups in the country and is also already working with potential customers for more LiDAR units, Windar said.

Jørgen Korsgaard Jensen, chief executive, added:  "The Chinese wind market is a key market for Windar Photonics future growth why I am very pleased for this new order and the agility of our newly appointed distributor.

“Our strategy in this very important Chinese market is showing progress and I am confident in our China IPP and OEM market expectations."

Windar’s LiDAR technology analyses the wind ahead of a turbine so it can be optimised to fit conditions.

Short term variations in wind speed are measured before they reach the wind turbine, which can then be adjusted to deal with these changes. The unit uses lasers and there are no moving parts so it is much cheaper than competing products in the market.
