Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Overview on Met Mast Installation Services” report to their offering.
The assessment of the available resources is one of the most important phases in the development of a wind project. Wind developers and government agencies need meteorological data to design, construct and operate wind energy projects. Many wind assessment technologies are used to monitor weather conditions. Out of these technologies, met mast systems have a proven record of wind assessment for many wind farms.
Developers select the met mast tower according to the type of location and duration of wind assessment. There are many factors including type of tower, quality of sensors and height of tower, which affect the met mast installation cost.
Met mast installation cost also varies according to factors such as project location, terrain and ground holding capacity. The offshore met masts market in Europe is expected to boom in the coming years as many offshore wind farms have been announced in European waters. As turbine hub heights increase, the remote sensing market is expected to increase in the future.
