The Research and Engineering Involved in Confidently Achieving 70m Monitoring

ImageAs the height of wind turbines continues to soar, it has become increasingly necessary to achieve ‘bankable data’ from wind monitoring sensors at higher levels. Potential wind development sites are often remote, so monitoring masts need to be easily transported, lightweight and possible to construct with minimal effort. For masts in excess of 60m to survive extreme conditions, the tower sections must have greater strength without excessively compromising the mast weight. In this article, Geoff Watson of Western Windpower describes the development programme for the company’s new 70m HiMast.
