Renewable Energy

Wind is one of the most important renewable energy sources. In recent years several wind parks are placed in sea. Most of them near coast but in the future more & more wind parks will be placed and also further away from shore.

Observator supplied several MetOcean systems for the transformer platforms. The systems are usually equipped with wind, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, visibility, cloud and seawater temperature sensors.

For the German (unmanned) substations Observator has developed also an ATIS system in order to inform the Helicopter pilot about the weather conditions by automatic broadcast before the final approach.
