AXYS Technologies Inc. has called on Ocean Tech Services (OTS) to support the commissioning and deployment of two of their WindSentinel floating-LiDAR (FLiDAR) buoys southwest of Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. OTS services included mooring assembly, vessel mobilization, anchor systems placement on defined coordinates and buoy deployments.
The two buoys will collect wind resource assessment data for an offshore windfarm, with an expected deployment duration of 2 years. Limited data from both buoys will be made available to the public via the AXYS online data portal. An additional wave and current monitoring buoy was also deployed near one of the two FLiDAR systems.
OTS will continue to provide operation and maintenance support to the buoys throughout the campaign duration.
