The Galion LiDAR, distributed by SgurrEnergy, has been optimised for collecting data for wind power applications. 

The all-sky scanning capability enables many more data collection opportunities than VAD scanning alone.
 
Galion Lidar is a laser-based wind profiler device, developed and distributed by SgurrEnergy to measure wind speed and capture directional data.  With its unique all-sky scanning capability and up to 4km range, Galion is a mature remote sensing technology that is successfully used for wind mapping applications worldwide.

Galion’s scanning options

A variety of scan options are available and Galion can conduct 3D scans including:

  • ·         Vertical cross section scan

  • ·         VAD scan

  • ·         Arc scan

Independently verified

Having established itself as a trusted technology for wind mapping, Galion Lidar has received independent validation from four industry respected institutions, including:

The latest addition to five years of independent and in-house testing strengthens the move towards general industry acceptance of the cutting edge wind measurement tool. Galion has now become the first and only lidar to be independently verified in two distinct ways – both in the industry standard cone scan and now also the arc scan geometry.  This proves Galion’s accuracy for two applications; local mast mode and remote mast mode.
