Project Manager, Bryony Benfield Pritchard commented:
“Installing lattice masts in winter can be a real challenge, especially due to the limited hours of daylight and particularly harsh weather conditions. We were keen to assist Muirhall Energy to get the mast up and start gathering data as soon as we could. Our site team enjoyed the challenge too – one of our site managers is from the Isle of Skye, so when it came to using local contacts we knew who to go to.”
About meteorological masts
Proven and dependable data from traditional met-masts have been the cornerstone of the modern wind industry since the late 1980s. Understanding wind flow at different heights using advanced anemometry has been at the core of Dulas’s DNA since 1988, when we installed our first anemometer and data logger system at the Cemmaes wind farm, Wales.
The enduring appeal of traditional met-masts compared to new technologies such as LiDAR and SoDAR, is much discussed within the wind industry.
