Meteorological Masts supporting anenometry
which collects windspeed data at height often in
advance of the turbine installation to ensure
the location is viable.
Offshore and Onshore Meteorological Masts
Our permanent Met Masts range from 50 to 300 metres in height and have slim profiles, limiting wind disturbance, improving the data accuracy. They are either free-standing upto 100m or guyed masts for taller structures. Apart from the very wide sections, tower and mast modules have welded members for quick installation and reduced maintenance. All our towers are designed to BS8100 parts 1 and 3 and supplied galvanised to BS EN ISO1461 with a minimum design life of 25 years. Booms are hinged or sliding on rollers if required, to ensure that the anemometers are in as much clear air as possible, but retractable for maintenance.
FLI can offer a full turnkey service, from bespoke design of both the mast and its foundations, right through to installation and commissioning. Our rigging teams can maintain masts so that the design life is extended.
Temporary Guyed Met Masts
Permanent Met Masts are sometimes inappropriate. FLI can provide smaller temporary guyed structures which can be removed and re-used once your site has been commissioned. These structures are lighter but require a larger footprint for the guy wires.
