OUR PRODUCT AS A SERVICE

Let our Sales Director give you a one minute pitch on what EOLOS does and the service it provides to the global offshore wind industry.

EOLOS FLS200


Designed specifically for the offshore wind industry

The EOLOS FLS200 has been purposely designed exclusively for the needs of the offshore wind industry, ensuring proper dynamics for wind measurements, while minimizing both CAPEX and OPEX of offshore wind measurement campaigns. This is achieved through its innovative light-weight, compact structure with the necessary robustness to withstand the harshest offshore environments for a completely autonomous wind resource measuring campaign, anywhere in the world.

Accredited quality processes

EOLOS adopts rigour in its business processes, achieving and maintaining accredited certification for ISO 9001, ISO14001 and OHSAS18001.

Cost-Effective

An EOLOS FLS200 resource measuring campaign offers bankable wind assessments to forecast wind energy potential.

Highly accurate

The EOLOS FLS200 uses the market leading ZX Lidars 300M continuous wave LiDAR, which has a proven track record in meteorological offshore applications.

All-in-one system

Equipped with fully autonomous and remote sensing devices the EOLOS FLS200 provides wind, wave and current flow information in parallel with local real-time meteorological data.

Versatile

It requires just a few weeks to get authorised and installed and can be easily re-deployed at any other location.

Fully autonomous

The EOLOS FLS200 is powered by means of renewable energy sources and batteries, which assure full autonomy.

Easy transport & deploy

Modular structural skeleton providing a low weight system, easy to install by means of readily available vessels at any industrial harbor.
