SMart Wind, the joint venture between Mainstream Renewable Power and Siemens Project Ventures, has announced the successful installation of the first meteorological mast in the 4GW Hornsea Zone.

The met mast uses the world’s first “twisted jacket” foundation for the offshore wind industry which was designed by Keystone Engineering. This novel foundation design, funded in partnership with the Carbon Trust and DONG Energy, aims to significantly reduce foundation CAPEX costs. The met mast will collect high quality wind data up to 103 metres above the sea using a full suite of metocean instruments including cup and ultrasonic anamometers, wind vanes, sea and air temperature and pressure sensors, and a wave height sensor.  This data will be collected throughout the coming years to inform the wind farm design activities and energy production estimates.
