New project with Nass&Wind Smart Services : Launching of Wind measurement campaign with a Windcube LiDAR Buoy off the coast of Dunkirk in France

Lorient, the 27th of May 2016 – Nass&Wind Smart Services installed its Wind LiDAR Buoy, the M3EA platform (Marine Measurements for Meteorological and Environmental Assessment), off the coast of Dunkirk in France. Our system is now collecting wind data to achieve the set objectives, wind resource assessment and characterization for the future offshore wind farm.

« We aim at proposing those data to future players, from private or governmental entities, who would show interest for the Dunkirk’ offshore wind farm », said Romain Baronnet, managing director of Nass&Wind Smart Services.
On Monday, the 4th of April 2016, Ségolène Royal, Minister of the Environment, Energy and Marine Affairs, announced the third offshore wind farm tender for a site off the coast of Dunkirk. The call for tender procedure should be launched during this summer.
The M3EA system developed by Nass&Wind Smart Services, mounted with a LEOSPHERE Wind LiDAR measurement system, demonstrated its capacities to successfully comply with the expected recommendations for such campaign (Carbon trust Offshore Wind Accelerator roadmap for the commercial acceptance of floating LiDAR technology). This M3EA Wind LiDAR Buoy installed on the Dunkirk site has been tested and validated by DNV GL.
