Hinesburg, VT, USA – NRG Systems, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of smart technologies for a range of wind, solar, and meteorological applications, has reached an agreement with Lidar OEM ZX Lidars to distribute the ZX 300 onshore vertical profiler globally through its Value Added Reseller network.

By coupling these technologies with installation and maintenance services provided by its worldwide partner network, NRG Systems offers customers end-to-end solutions tailored to fit all projects, no matter where they are or what their measurement requirements may be.

By extending our reach beyond the North American market, we are certain that our worldwide local support network will leverage our vast Lidar experience to help customers acquire reliable, bankable data for their wind energy projects.”

Ian Locker, Managing Director of ZX Lidars, said, “Further adding to a decade of NRG’s overall experience with Lidar, we are delighted that within a relatively short period of time they have requested to, and indeed been authorized to, support ZX Lidars globally.
