From small-scale private wind turbine projects to large wind farm developers, we provide a wide range of wind monitoring products to suit all applications. By carefully matching the right wind monitoring equipment, to the correct met mast, we are confident that we have the best solution for your wind site. Being an independent installer, we can install any met mast that you have or wish to purchase to tight timescales.
Instrumentation is installed to mm accuracy and angular errors below 1 degree are maintained. Our installation report fully defines the instrumentation in terms of serial number, height, orientation and boom geometry. Angles are measure using a digital inclinometer with bi-axis sensor which decouples mast inclination to horizontal and boom/instrument angle.
Full load control
Wind Measurement International has developed systems to ensure full load path control through out the lift: The lifting winches prevent movement away from the winch point, but additional safety measures are required to ensure the combination of gin pole weight and wind gusts do not produce an uncontrolled movement towards the winch point.
"Eyes" are swaged onto the rear guys to allow full load control of the met mast as it nears vertical. A twin winch system is used to provide additional safety levels. The methodology has been developed by Wind Measurement International to improve upon the recommended safety procedures of standard hi mast installations.
Drive-in, dig-in, rock pin or concrete foundation ground anchor solutions are available to match your needs.
