Oldbaum extends its RS Xplorer range

The RS Xplorer AnywhereJune 2014

Last week Oldbaum extended its range of products: the RS Xplorer range for remote sensing deployments offers an increased level of flexibility for clients working on wind projects.

RS Xplorer Anywhere, the trailer derivative in the RS Xplorer range, makes it significantly easier to get power to rough complex sites: Mounted on a custom-built off-road trailer, the RS Xplorer Anywhere provides a modular extendable, flexible platform to support the instrumentation in the field. With its new hybrid power delivery solution, the Anywhere powers remote sensing instruments through solar panels, and additionally offers a platform to add additional power sources required to meet the demands of the instrument in the field. The default specification adds 840Wp PV to a methanol fuel cell solution to provide ample power to supply whichever instrument the client wishes to use, for instance, Natural Power’s ZephIR 300 ground-based LiDAR and Leospehere’s WindCUBE V2 LiDAR. RS Power Source: A solar panel

The RS Xplorer is a scalable mobile power solution for wind measurement support that has been tested in the roughest and toughest of terrain, proving it can go anywhere for less, thereby drastically reducing installation and maintenance costs.

The system also comes with a range of communication packages to suit any location and data requirements, giving the client full access to the system performance and status. Remote backup data logging is also included in Oldbaum’s standard offer, as well as GEO-fencing security features, giving the client peace of mind as to the whereabouts and security of the equipment at all times.

The RS XPlorer Climate and the RS Xplorer Light complete Oldbaum’s current RS XPlorer range: RS Xplorer Climate is the energy box derivative, which is particularly suitable for harsh climate conditions such as prolonged periods of time with temperatures below 5 degree centigrade, and the RS Xplorer Light, the base box derivative, which can be used in less harsh climatic environments.

Oldbaum’s Director Monica Griesbaum explained: “We are very proud to extend our RS Xplorer range to include the Anywhere off-road trailer solution. As the market moves towards the adoption of Remote Sensing technologies, we see the RS Xplorer as being an essential and exciting support solution for our clients.”

Oldbaum’s Technical Director Andy Oldroyd added: “The RS Xplorer range is based on over 12 years field experience in the deployment and management of remote sensing instrumentation solutions. The RS Xplorer has been designed to give clients complete remote control over their system and ensure the instrument and data are delivered at a high level of availability. The aim is to ensure the power source is no longer a risk in remote deployment of LiDAR units.”

Looking forward to London's Global Offshore Wind Conference

GOWJune 2015

As one of the leading wind data consultancies and with vast experience in remote sensing technologies, such as nacelle-based LiDARs, Oldbaum are especially looking forward to next week’s Global Offshore Wind conference in London that will be hosted by Renewable UK. It’s the association’s 14th annual offshore wind energy conference where over 100 expert speakers and more than 150 exhibitors will attend.

It is an exciting time to be heading to such a high-profile conference in the British capital when the UK continues to be the world leader in installed offshore wind capacity – 4.48GW, as much as the rest of the world combined. The conference will feature two debates: one about offshore wind in competitive markets where special attention will be given to securing a 2030 trajectory, and another one about manufacturers and developers taking a new approach to industrialisation. Additionally, there will be a number of presentations on topics such as global markets for offshore wind, investment strategies, and key policies for continued growth.

Find our Technical Director Andy Oldroyd and our Data Analyst Erin Baker on stand 96 at ExCel, part of Scottish Development International (SDI). To arrange a meeting please get in touch:  m.orth@oldbaumservices.co.uk.

Finland: EWEA Resource Assessment workshop

May 2015

Oldbaum’s Data Scientist Emma is heading to Helsinki next week – to take part in EWEA’s 2015 Resource Assessment Technology workshop. This is the 3rd edition of EWEA’s event on wind resource assessment, which runs from Tuesday, June 2 to Wednesday, June 3. This year's focal point will be on how to deal with and reduce uncertainty.

Emma will present as part of the ‘Measurements’ strand on Tuesday, June 2 at 3pm. LiDAR measurements will be given special attention, with the focus of the session being on reducing uncertainty and cutting costs of onshore & offshore wind measurements.

Emma will provide insights into two offshore campaigns which Oldbaum is currently working on in France. The full title of her presentation is: ‘Cost Effective Offshore Wind Measurement Campaigns using Scanning LiDAR’.

All set for Nantes' THETIS show

May 2015

The 4th edition of THETIS EMR takes place next Wednesday, May 21 to Thursday, May 22 and Oldbaum will be exhibiting! THETIS is THE Marine and Offshore event to attend in France - and this year Nantes will play host.

It's an exciting time to return to the Pays de La Loire region, as work is underway on two 500MW offshore wind farms. One of the farms is located in Pays de La Loire - on the Isles of Yeu and Noirmoutier. The other offshore project is at Treport, in upper Normandy. Oldbaum's team is delighted to be providing wind data expertise for these projects, including installs of two WindCUBE LiDARs and one WindCUBE V2 for site analyses.

We'll be showcasing Oldbaum's wide range of wind data services at THETIS: from expert site assessment work in the planning stage, to O&M services in the post-construction stage.

Find Erin on stand C34, part of Scotland's large podium. To arrange a meeting please feel free to get in touch: t.koenig@oldbaumservices.co.uk
