SgurrEnergy has launched its own wind monitoring meteorological mast, SgurrMetMast, for use in wind resource assessments.
The met mast is available in heights of 70 or 80 metres and can be installed with a range of wind monitoring instrumentation including cup and ultrasonic anemometers; temperature, pressure and relative humidity sensors and wind vanes to provide project critical, bank grade wind data for wind energy projects. The new temporary mast, which has a design fatigue life of 30 years, can be deployed on a variety of complex terrain including arable land, forestry, deforested land, hillside locations and mountains. Accredited to UKAS 17025 (for IEC 61400-12 services) and IOSH health and safety standards, the team provides hands on, site installations for mast heights of 10m to 80m. Located in Scotland’s central belt allows the team to deliver an effective UK wide-installation service. The full met mast package includes selection of met mast location on site, the design and supply of met mast and measurement equipment, met mast installation, data recovery and monthly reporting and maintenance.
