Minneapolis-based National Wind Assessments has agreed to install 10 60-meter meteorological towers for Nebraska Public Power District (NPPD) throughout the state of Nebraska. NPPD requested proposals from several wind assessment companies earlier this year and awarded National Wind Assessments the contract. In addition, National Wind Assessments will provide wind data collection services for all 10 towers.

"We are pleased to provide our wind assessment services to Nebraska's leading utility company," says Kevin Romuld, president of National Wind Assessments. "We are excited NPPD chose us to help capture Nebraska's wind resources, and we look forward to working with them on this project."

The tower installations will be split into two phases, with the first phase of installation and data collection beginning this month.
