New Tilt-Up Met Tower Installed In Colorado

NAW Staff, Wednesday 09 January 2013 - 00:00:00

Capital City Renewables (CCR) has installed a 100-meter tilt-up meteorological tower in Colorado.

The company says the met tower can be both climbed and easily moved by tilting it downward. The metal lattice tower was assembled on the ground - complete with anemometers and wind vanes, a safety wire for climbing, and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) safety lights - before being erected and mounted on a steel-plate base.

CCR installed, documented and tested the instruments on the ground for the new tower, which can be climbed to repair instruments, the company says, adding that the tower meets Federal Aviation Administration guidelines for aircraft visibility.
