The TechnoCentre éolien has announced the commissioning of Canada’s tallest weather mast at its Site nordique expérimental en éolien CORUS (SNEEC) in Rivière-au-Renard. Standing 126 metres in height, the mast is equipped with more than 30 weather sensors, located at some fifteen different heights.

All the data collected is transmitted via a fibre optic cable to the TechnoCentre éolien’s Osisoft PI system. This high tech weather mast will serve to measure the impact of the northern climate on the productivity of wind power stations, conduct research associated with the wind resource and carry out studies on the detection and accretion of ice and atmospheric ice. The presence of sensors at several different heights will make it possible to characterise wind shear more precisely. For its project, le TechnoCentre éolien selected a mast designed in Québec by OENKO. The mast is notably designed to withstand combined loads of 200 km/hr and 40 mm of ice. HATCH Énergie renouvelable was commissioned to manage the project supply and installation. The mast was commissioned on February 6.
