Leases

Global

Wind AXIOM offers a wide range of global datasets for early-stage site assessments in the Explorer subscription package. In addition to the freely available Global Wind Atlas, we provide calibrated ERA5 wind data from ECMWF. We consider it the industry standard when calculating energy output and revenue expectation with medium to high uncertainties.

Regional

With Wind AXIOM, we offer developers the correct data at a suitable resolution to prepare proposals and bring leases to FID. We offer comprehensive, unique, high-quality data for the respective leases.

Regional Wind Lease Data Coverage

US West Coast

Lease Rounds: California, Oregon

  • The growth of offshore wind projects on the US west coast will be high. Therefore, in addition to our global datasets in the Explorer Package, we will offer high-resolution wind datasets from Vaisala for California and Oregon, calibrated for offshore wind use. The data will be part of the Bid Developer package and available in late Q3 / early Q4 2022 - just suitable for the upcoming bid rounds

Scotland

Lease Rounds: UK, Norway

  • Scotland has already had one of the largest bidding rounds with ScotWind in 2022, and the growth potential is high. Besides the global datasets in Wind Axiom’s Explorer package, we offer high-resolution wind datasets from Vaisala, calibrated for offshore wind use from TGS in the Bid Developer subscription.

Brazil

Lease Rounds: Brazil

  • The growth of Brazil’s offshore wind projects is high. Therefore, in addition to our global datasets in the Explorer Package, we will offer high-resolution wind datasets from Vaisala for the Campos area, calibrated for offshore wind use. The data will be part of the Bid Developer package and available in late Q3 / early Q4 2022 - just suitable for the upcoming bid rounds.

US East Coast

Lease Rounds: New York Bight, Carolina, Central Atlantic

The US East Coast is the area with the best data coverage in Wind Axiom. In addition to the global wind datasets in the Explorer package, public LiDAR data, and commercial and contextual data, we offer calibrated high-resolution wind data and TGS' FLiDAR campaign data on the platform as part of the Bid and Lease Developer subscriptions.

Connect to TGS’s floating LiDAR in the New York Bight leases with Wind Axiom. Our lidars are cheaper than traditional methods of licensing wind measurement data offshore. We have a lidar buoy in the water now, in place for the next two years, focusing on the US east coast projects, and are planning more in the US and further afield.

The data is used to understand wind characteristics accurately and reduce uncertainty to a minimum. The result will form the bankable wind assessment, an agreement with a bank to finance the project, or confirm the design of the turbines.
