This work presents the first, long-term, demonstration case of the use of spinner anemometers for power curve measurements in an offshore wind farm. The stability of the spinner anemometer wind speed and its STF during a 22-month measurement period was quantified, using a nacelle lidar as reference. Power curves and annual energy productions (AEPs) were obtained using this long-term data set, to assess the spinner anemometer wind speed stability. Next, several STFs were obtained at a reference turbine in different periods (four two-months periods) to assess the STF seasonality. Finally, the AEPs of three neighbouring turbines were analysed using the STFs generated at the reference turbine.
