FLI Met Masts
FLI Structures design, manufacture and install Met Masts for Wind Farms. These Met Masts are used at Wind Farms to collect the wind data at that particular location. The Met Masts are often put up in advance of the wind turbines to ensure the location for the wind farm is appropriate.
Onshore & Offshore Permanent Met Masts
Our free standing permanent Met Masts range from 5 metres to 300 metres high, they have a slim profile with efficient member sizes resulting in minimal visual impact. These members have welded modules which provide quick installation and reduced maintenance. All our towers are designed to BS8100 parts 1 and 3 then supplied to the customer galvanised to BS EN ISO1461 with a minimum design life of 25 years. FLI's design team analysed previous Met Masts designs and applied our new rounded structural members to our product range, which in turn reduces wind disturbance to give more accurate data to wind farm developers.
FLI can offer a full turnkey service to every customer from bespoke design right through to installation and commission. We have the ability for our in-house rigging teams to maintain your Met Mast for it's complete working life and service our anemometer equipment when required. We have a standard product range for the Met Mast market, but bespoke solutions are available upon request.
Onshore Temporary Met Masts
If developing smaller sites onshore and our permanent Met Mast's are not what you are after, FLI can provide smaller temporary guyed structures which can removed and re-used once your site has been commissioned. These structures are smaller in size and could require a larger area for guyed wires to be attached, but have the added benefit of being able to be moved onto the next site you look to develop. All anemometer equipment required can be attached to these structures and give developers all the information they need to see how a site will perform. FLI apply there same design standards and innovations to this smaller product range and again offer a bespoke design if you require.
