Document typeConference report
Rights accessOpen Access
The KIC-InnoEnergy project “NEPTUNE” develops a floating Lidar buoy and a hindcast- and forecast model for wind- wave- and current measurements of offshore wind farms. In this paper just the lidar buoy is presented and discussed: Main challenges, the design ideas and the steps to develop, test and prototype this product, which – according to the KIC-InnoEnergy project idea – should be commercialized after the project end, foreseen for the end of 2014. KIC-InnoEnergy is funded from the European Institute of Technology, EIT.
