We have decided to take the guesswork out of Windcube verification and now offer validation testing of customer units against our reference Lidar at any time. The testing can serve as an addition or alternative to on-site validation against a mast.
In the course of conversations with wind developers new to Lidar technology, a number of questions seem to come up regularly.
