AXYS congratulates Fishermen's Energy on buoy deployment

The WindSentinel™ is a wind resource assessment buoy that uses a simultaneously pulsing LiDAR to accurately measure wind speed, wind direction, and turbulence offshore at turbine hub-height and across the blade span.

AXYS Technologies Inc. (AXYS) would like to congratulate Fishermen's Energy on the recent deployment of their WindSentinel buoy. With a year of preparations and near-shore testing, the buoy was relocated from a test site near Atlantic City to an offshore area leased from the U. S. Department of Interior's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). Located eleven miles southeast of Atlantic, NJ, this site is within the Mid-Atlantic Wind Energy Area, in an area Fishermen's Energy proposed to build a 350MW wind farm.

"The device is now operating in 65 feet of water and transmitting environmental and meteorological data back to Fishermen's offices to support wind farm design and development," said Stephen O'Malley, Fishermen's Director of Metocean Assessments.

The WindSentinel™ is a wind resource assessment buoy that uses a simultaneously pulsing LiDAR to accurately measure wind speed, wind direction, and turbulence offshore at turbine hub-height and across the blade span. Using three fixed beams, this LiDAR can take single focused or multi-point measurements up to a maximum range of 150 meters.

"These measurements provide information for energy production estimates, as well as details about the wind effects across the rotor swept area of the planned turbines" stated Chris Wissemann, Fishermen's CEO. "The measurements aid in blade and other equipment design." Wissemann added.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
