The University of Malta has successfully brought wind lidar technology to the country, with funding from an EU Project. The industryâs single most validated wind lidar, ZephIR 300, will be utilised by the University to assist with Degree program course delivery and further research within the academic communities based at the University. Furthermore, the high-resolution 50Hz wind data will aid in the prospecting of coastal wind resources. The ZephIR 300 has been assessed and accepted to deliver against strict criteria. The introduction of wind lidar to Malta ensures engineers and scientists of tomorrowâs world will start their adventure with ZephIR 300 wind lidar technology as the core. This type of CW wind lidar gives very accurate measurements of the wind speed, direction and other wind characteristics including Turbulence Intensity. ZephIR 300 is also the single most validated wind lidar at a consistent IEC compliant met mast site.
