Floating lidar sea trial metocean measurement

RPS took LiDAR technology and integrated it into a buoy with power, data storage and satellite communication capabilities. 

Applying our deep expertise of offshore measurement, our design and development process was focussed on creating a reliable design to maximise data accuracy and return, while making the process of information gathering easier and more cost-effective for our clients.

You can read more about our Floating LiDAR buoys here, or feel free to get in touch with one of our regional representatives below.

LiDAR buoy deployment

Equinor is planning to develop the floating offshore wind project Firefly. To support a feasibility study into the viability of wind resource, RPS was engaged to deliver two Floating LiDAR buoys to collect the data that will determine future investment decisions. They were deployed into the East Sea from Ulsan, marking a significant project milestone. You can read the full story here.

Michael Wiegele, RPS Metocean

Michael has been with RPS for around 15 years and has seen our metocean science and technology division grow from strength to strength.

In this interview from 2020, he describes the evolution of RPS’ Floating LiDAR buoy for renewables and other offshore projects. From the beginning, the team designed our buoys to be environmentally friendly, and resilient in the inevitably harsh ocean conditions.

Michael is truly passionate about his work, and the work that RPS delivers for our clients. "Making complex easy" is more than a tag line – it’s how we show up, every single day.
