Ecofys Wind Turbine Testing Services (ETTS) has completed construction of a 120-meter mast at Test Site Lelystad, a wind turbine test facility on Wageningen University grounds in the Netherlands.

The company says the new met mast is equipped with instrumentation at four heights (40, 80, 95 and 120 meters) to provide verification testing services for remote sensing devices such as SODARs and LIDARs.

“By now, remote sensing technology like LIDARs and SODARs are fully accepted to assess wind resources and to verify power curves. A high-quality verification of these measurement devices is essential,” says Ecofys’ Michiel Muller. “This new, extra-tall and fully equipped mast provides those means and allows wind project developers and owners to take full advantage of this next innovative step in technology.
