Like all new technologies, it is important to comprehensively evaluate for the full operational lifecycle of a windfarm site (normally 20-25 years). The informed choice for new windfarm developments is the permanent SLX MetMast up to 120m tall taking everything into account.
However, from time to time, site-specific requirements may differ, for instance, the requirement for reference met data on windfarms which have been in operation for some time or perhaps, difficulty with local planning authority or access difficulty etc.
Data Structures have recently had the pleasure to successfully work with Statkraft and ZX Lidars on two existing windfarms in Waterford & Donegal. We are delighted with this opportunity to continue developing our meteorological measurement services portfolio into the Wind Energy industry as Ireland’s leading supplier.
Our Seán Carty (Renewables Business Manager) & John Kelly (Managing Director) are attending IWEA Autumn Conference 24th October. Please visit them on Stand 2 where they will be delighted to discuss MetMasts, LiDAR and our Meteorological Measurement Systems.
