Corio Generation, an international offshore wind enterprise, have installed light detection and ranging (LiDAR) instruments for its wind projects located in Cavite and Guimaras.

In a report by Manila Standard, the wind projects, which would be in operation for at least a year, would be equipped with LiDARS that would collect information on the wind ventures. These technologies were made to live through adverse coastal climate.

Corio Generation Development Director for the Philippines Alma Roxas-Aguila said that the stationing of the LiDAR is considered a crucial benchmark as the firm was pressing to measure the wind resources and, in turn, would verify the advancement of prospective wind projects in the country.

Additionally. Corio Generation Deputy Chief Executive Alejandro de Hoz expressed that the wind firm is considering opportunities in the Philippines and is looking into taking part in future auctions.

Hoz received a cordial greeting from the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Secretary Raphael Lotilla. Furthermore, he commended the country’s efforts in shifting the electricity generation to renewable energy (RE).

Corio Generation, based in London, has five projects underway. Under the wind energy service contract acknowledged by the DOE, the company is gearing for projects in Iloilo, Guimaras, Mindoro, Cavite, and Batangas that would offer a combined capacity of 3 gigawatts (GW).

These projects would include 1 GW floating wind projects and 2 GW of fixed-bottom.
