RPS Floating LiDAR buoy
ON THIS PAGE
Contact our Metocean team

For developers, competition is increasing as the search widens for cleaner, renewable energy resources offshore. Collecting reliable data that supports a ‘bankable investment’ narrative is critical.

We took traditional LiDAR technology and integrated it into a floating buoy with highly reliable renewable power, data storage and satellite communication capabilities. We gather and deliver accurate data your project can trust.

  • Metocean Real Time Systems

    Accurate, reliable, readily available data

    10-minute averaged wind data is transmitted near real-time and raw data is transmitted daily. The buoy features a ZX 300M LiDAR sensor, whose reliability has been proven by multiple deployments across the globe.

  • Metocean Forecasting

    Quality data assured

    LiDAR status is monitored through real-time sensor monitoring with automated data quality control and regular manual quality assurance.

  • Offshore wind icon

    Uses renewable power

    Solar panels and micro-turbines harness energy to recharge internal batteries – helping meet the stringent environmental consenting conditions often associated with renewable wind farm projects.

  • Metocean Ocean Management icon

    Special mooring design

    Enables accurate wave measurement. Ensures buoy doesn't pull through wave crests in storm conditions. Reduces risk of entanglement for marine life.

  • Emergency Response

    Redundancy features

    Two independent power systems – can run for 12 days without charging from sun or wind. Redundant satellite, WiFi and 4G communication devices to suit any communication requirement.

Recent deployments - key markets

RPS’ floating LiDAR buoys provide highly accurate data to inform offshore wind farm development, for activities such as site selection, yield optimisation, array engineering and workplace safety. They have so far been deployed in the US, the UK, Europe, Australia and South Korea.

The power system of our buoy is designed to support high or low latitude deployment, except for regions where sea ice is prevalent. The buoy and mooring system are tailored for each deployment and for the water depth and extreme environmental conditions expected, including typhoons, hurricanes and cyclones. The buoy can be deployed in water depths ranging from 10m to full ocean depth.

    Innovation: we're asking "What else can we put on a LiDAR buoy?"

    While supporting our client RVO in the Netherlands, we've also been looking at ways we can innovate to further support offshore development.

  • LiDAR in the ocean

    RPS LiDAR buoy records extreme conditions during 2022 winter storms

    Data like this is vital to our clients. In the Northeast US, an RPS buoy gathered data during max. wind speed up to 30 m/s and wave heights up to 10 metres. A second storm featured blizzard conditions, similar wind speeds and temperatures below -5°C.

    Supporting Equinor off the U.S. Atlantic coast

    Combining world-leading floating LiDAR measurement technology with advanced metocean data analysis and modelling capability, our team is monitoring a range of open ocean environmental variables.

    Delivering a metocean survey programme for the Beacon Wind Energy Area, U.S.

    RPS has been delivering oceanographic data for Equinor across the New York Wind Energy Area. We will also deliver wind, wave and current monitoring with real-time data transmission for a 24-month measurement programme in Massachusetts.
