Leaders in Tower Technology for Telecoms and Renewables Wind 

We Can provide You with Meteorological Towers and Masts 

Meteorological Towers and Mast to suit your needs 

We supply both self-supporting met towers and guy-wire masts. Towers are predominantly of triangular lattice construction. They are bolted to a cast foundation using a casting template holding the bolts in place during concrete curing. Most self-supporting met towers are assembled on the ground and lifted into place in one action using a mobile crane which is a unique feature, saving cost of crane hire. A second, smaller crane/fork-lift or tele-handler, is usually used to off-load the mast from the delivery lorry and to manoeuvre the sections and tower parts in place during assembly. Guy-wire masts can be erected a section at a time with the help of a crane or by using a ‘jib stick’ to hoist the sections into place by aid of a ground based winch. And why not use one of our recommended novel winch systems by LIMPET. Direct mast to LIMPET mechanical interface is available from LIMPET. Offshore met towers are usually assembled on the dockside before shipping to the platform. We are often asked to supply additional equipment, sometimes of a bespoke nature, for use on the tower, platform or even on the sea bed! 
Unique extensive experience of meteorological tower design and manufacturing 
Confirmative design to IEC61400-1-12 Ed2 
Low flow distortion due to slender steel members/flange connections 
Low flow distortion due to high lattice porosity 
High level of corrosion protection, well in excess of ISO 1461 requirement 
Comprehensive manufacturing record for the produce Comprehensive production and administrative quality assurance program such as EN 3834-2, EN1090-1, EN1090-2 for welded structures to Execution class 4. 
Extensive foundation design and support, adhering to site conditions 
Overarching production management system guarantee delivery on time 
Instrument uprights are 0.5% F.D. 
Instrument mechanical interface provided for every conceivable instrument, be it mechanical anemometer, ultrasonic anemometer, etc. 
Bracketry available for ‘non wind’ instruments such as pressure sensor, rel humidity probes, data loggers, etc. 

Onshore Meteorological Towers and Masts 

We supply both self-supporting met towers and guy-wire masts. Towers are predominately of triangular lattice construction. They are bolted to a foundation template (supplied by us) that is embedded in a concrete base. Most self-supporting met towers are assembled on the ground and lifted into place in one action using a mobile crane. A second, smaller crane, is usually used to off-load the mast from the delivery lorry and manoeuvre the sections during assembly. Guy-wire masts can be erected a section at a time with the help of a crane or by using a ‘jib stick’ to hoist the sections into place. Offshore met towers are usually assembled on the dockside before shipping to the platform. We are often asked to supply additional equipment, sometimes of a bespoke nature, for use on the tower, platform or even on the sea bed! We can install every type of instrument and, if required, carry out very precise wind vane alignment. 

Off-Shore Meteorological Towers 

2 different tower series are available for offshore applications, Series S and Series MET, determined by the type of platform/foundation used and environmental conditions from wind and wave in combination. Below show’s samples of each type, deployed in UK, Irish, German, Danish and Swedish waters. Both tower series can be configured to comply with IEC 61400-12-1 Ed 2 for power performance applications or for prospecting/wind assessment prior to wind farm investment/built. Both tower families subject to fatigue analysis in combination with input from platform designer and met-ocean data.
