Mounting Boom | Antenna
Mount Thies FCA anemometers on NRG 50m and 60m XHD TallTowers in compliance with Annex G of the IEC 61400-12-1 Ed. 1 (2005) and Ed. 2 (2017) standards with this antenna boom.
The NRG Antenna Boom mounts a Thies FCA anemometer on NRG 50m and 60m XHD TallTowers. Anemometer cups are positioned at exactly 50.4m and 60.2m heights, respectively. This mounting arrangement complies with guidelines provided in Annex G of both editions of the IEC 61400-12-1 standard.
This mounting solution is well suited for traditional wind resource assessment campaigns as well as Edition 2 power performance tests at operating wind farms in conjunction with a remote sensing device.
NRG tubular tilt-up towers allow companies to perform both internal and contractual power performance testing in a way that does not require the installation of a permanent met tower. No permanent foundations or long-term permitting is needed. These towers reduce the overall cost of the test, allow for short lead times (typically less than a week), and come in an efficient and portable single package, offering more logistical flexibility for wind farm developers and operators working in remote locations.
