LONDON (Alliance News) - LiDAR systems provide Windar Photonics PLC said on Thursday it has been chosen by the Carbon Trust as the LiDAR supplier for its EUR2.3 million wind farm control trials in the UK.

Windar will supply eight WindEYE sensors which will be installed on offshore turbines which will demonstrate how effective the implementation of control strategies can reduce the cost of offshore wind.

The project, which is part of the Carbon Trust's Offshore Wind Accelerator programme has been backed by German utility company EnBW AG, utility service provider E.ON SE, energy firm Innogy SE, Norwegian oil & gas company Statoil and Swedish power company Vattenfall AB.

The trials are expected to start in 2018 and full results expected in 2019.

"I am delighted that Windar has been selected to supply WindEYE sensors to such a significant project backed by major industry players. We are confident the project will focus industry attention on the multiple benefits of our WindEYE systems, from increasing wind energy yield, reducing turbine fatigue, lowering operational and maintenance costs and ultimately reducing the levelised cost of energy for energy producers," said Chief Executive Officer Jorgen Korsgaard Jensen.

Shares in Windar Photonics were up 7.7% at 112.50 pence on Thursday.
