SgurrEnergy, independent engineering consultancy, has launched its own wind monitoring meteorological mast, SgurrMetMast, for use in wind resource assessments.
SgurrMetMast is available in heights of 70 or 80 meters 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 internationally on a variety of complex terrain, including arable land, forestry, deforested land, hillside locations, and mountains.
SgurrMetMast has been developed with on-going input from SgurrEnergy’s in-house health and safety consultants to design out risk and has undergone independent structural assessment in accordance with Eurocode 3.
The launch of SgurrMetMast complements the experience and track record of the company’s in-house mast installation team. Accredited to UKAS 17025 (for IEC 61400-12 services) and IOSH health and safety standards, the team provides hands on, high quality 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.
SgurrEnergy’s full met mast package includes selection of met mast location onsite, the design and supply of met mast and measurement equipment, met mast installation, data recovery, and monthly reporting and maintenance. SgurrEnergy also provides full bank grade wind analysis and energy yield prediction for a wide range of clients.
As well as SgurrMetMast, SgurrEnergy offers Galion Lidar, a remote sensing device, as an alternative or complementary option to mast mounted instrumentation.
