International renewable energy consultancy SgurrEnergy has launched its own wind-monitoring meteorological mast, SgurrMetMast, for use in wind resource assessments.

SgurrMetMast is available in heights of 70 or 80 meters and can be installed with a range of wind-monitoring instrumentation, including cup and ultrasonic anemometers; temperature, pressure and relative humidity sensors; and wind vanes to provide wind data for wind energy projects.

SgurrEnergy says the new temporary mast, which has a design fatigue life of 30 years, can be deployed on a variety of complex terrain, including arable land, forestry, deforested land, hillside locations and mountains.

SgurrMetMast has been developed with ongoing input from SgurrEnergy’s in-house health and safety consultants and has undergone independent structural assessment in accordance with Eurocode 3.

“We are extremely excited to launch SgurrMetMast, a product based on SgurrEnergy’s 10 years of extensive wind-monitoring and meteorological mast experience,” says Robbie Gibson, SgurrEnergy’s measurement team manager. “Offering our customers the option of choosing SgurrMetMast and our own installation team allows us to pass on a number of benefits to their wind energy projects, including reduced costs, tighter control and clearer lines of communication. We are looking forward to working with new and existing clients to deliver this value-added product and service.”
