Waves, buoys, offshore wind energy: Wind measurement in the German Bight

Fraunhofer IWES Wind Lidar Buoys floated in the German Bight, east of the Bard Offshore 1 wind farm, at times last year. These yellow buoys ensure that comprehensive wind measurement data and meteorological parameters can be precisely recorded and evaluated….

Versatile and flexibly employable service: automated optimization of floaters

Compared with conventional offshore wind turbines, “floaters” open up enormous wind energy potential, as they allow development of so many offshore locations in deep waters. The Fraunhofer IWES has been developing a tool for the automated optimization of floating wind…
