  • Scottish engineering to stand the test of time Representing rugged Scottish engineering from the Dulas team, our tubular met-masts are proven to survive the most arduous of on-site conditions, up to a height of 90 metres. Capable of holding twice the radial ice of the closest competing mast, they are hot-dip galvanised to give a lifespan of 20+ years. These quality, heavy duty masts are engineered by our specialist team in Inverness and are customised with data loggers and the highest quality instruments for each individual client. Chillwinds are renowned for their ability to stand up to the worst conditions – they’ve been flown into environments as inhospitable as the Norwegian tundra and installed on stormy offshore islands.
  • For the ultimate in measurement height and customisation, lattice towers offer flexible measurement solutions at a range of heights from 60m-120m. Lattice towers have the advantage that they can often achieve greater heights than tubular masts and can be climbed and maintained without having to lower the entire mast. Dulas offers both freestanding tower structures that are typically deployed on operational wind farm sites as well as guyed towers that are more normally deployed to support development wind monitoring campaigns. Guyed towers usually have a lifespan in the field of 5 years or more, if regularly checked and maintained. They provide a secure measurement platform throughout the typical duration of a development campaign. We are experienced operators, installers and turnkey constructors of lattice masts and can provide a bespoke measurement system that is suited to your needs whilst maintaining compliance with IEC 61400-12-1 (2017) and MEASNET guidance and standards.
  • The world’s leading vertical profiler, The Vaisala WindCube The WindCube by Vaisala is a global benchmark for vertical wind profiling. Capable of measuring at 20 heights simultaneously, and accurate across a range of heights up to 300m, the WindCube is recognised around the globe for reliable and consistent laser wind measurement. From energy yield assessment to power performance testing and optimisation, the WindCube is accepted onshore and offshore by all international standards and guidelines, including IEC, IEA, Measnet, TR6, and Stage 3 DNV-GL. Thousands of Vaisala LiDARs have been deployed throughout the world and the instruments are renowned for consistently delivering reliable, accurate data that results in a maximised return on investment. Dulas is proud to be the exclusive sales and support partner for Vaisala WindCube in the UK and Ireland.
