High Performance Wind LiDAR Systems for Australian and New Zealand Market

MGW, as the strategical partner of Nanjing Movelaser Technology Co., Ltd, is closely working with Movelaser to promote, marketing and sales their wind monitoring Lidar systems and related technical services for Australian and New Zealand wind farm projects (Wind energy assessment & forecast, and power curve validation tests), civil aviation and atmospheric monitoring projects. 


Nowadays, the wind LiDARs start to play a key role in renewable energy industry. Because when the wind turbine hub height become higher, the traditional Met-mast construction becomes more difficult and expensive.  Additionally, the setup of lidar for wind monitoring involves no high-risk activities on site, and it can be setup in 1 or 2 hours when the power supply is installed on mobile equipment.

Molas NL - Nacelle Wind Monitoring LiDAR Systems

Key Features

Measuring distance: forward-looking from 50 to 400m, configurable;

Cost-effective: under massive production, more than 2,000 units have been deployed

Built-in wind turbine control algorithm: 

  • Built-in algorithm to measure static wind turbine yaw deviation
  • Dynamic wind turbine yaw control 
  • Wind turbine blades occlusion algorithm (Patent), to increase the data acquisition rate
  • Molas NL wind speed prediction algorithm

Designed for high reliability; 


Wind turbine performance optimization:

  • Molas NL wind Lidars can be eyes of the modern wind turbines to predict the wind change and then control the pitch and rotor speed to potentially reduce the mechanical fatigue, avoid the extreme load and increase the power output;

Power Curve Validation:

  • Molas NL Forward-looking wind measurement Lidar can also be used for power curve validation as the independent wind speed source for the test. This is much more cost-effective than current testing equipment.
