Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
HINESBURG, Vt., Oct. 15, 2018 — NRG Systems, a subsidiary of ESCO Technologies Inc., has acquired a portfolio of advanced lidar technologies developed by Pentalum, an Israeli company that specializes in remote sensing solutions for wind measurement.

Founded in 2009, Pentalum develops low-cost lidar solutions that have been deployed by customers in the wind resource assessment, wind farm operations, forecasting, and research markets. Pentalum’s principal innovation is its patented Direct Detect Lidar technology.

“NRG has played an active role in the global wind energy market for over three decades, and we recognize the growing importance of lidar in resource measurement and wind farm operations,” said Justin Wheating, president of NRG Systems. “Pentalum’s technology, when paired with NRG’s global sales and service capabilities, is a significant advantage for our customers, and a great new opportunity for customers who could not previously justify the high cost of doppler lidar solutions.”

NRG Systems will work with its global partner network to offer sales, technical support, and integrated services such as remote power supply.

NRG is a manufacturer of sustainable, smart technologies, including measurement systems, turbine control sensors, and lidar remote sensors. ESCO manufactures highly engineered filtration and fluid control products for the aviation, space, and process markets.
