RWE installs Nordsee Ost meteorological tower

GERMANY: RWE has installed a meteorological mast for its 295MW Nordsee Ost wind farm in the North Sea.

The project is set to be completed in 2013. It will consist of 48 Repower 6.15MW turbines.

The tower will feature a laser-assisted measuring system effective horizontally and vertically at up to 200-metres.

RWE head of offshore Martin Skiba said: "The new measuring tower will now be used in our project area on a permanent basis. The collected data will help us control our Nordsee Ost wind farm efficiently in the future."

The company said a 62-metre tubular steel foundation was used in the installation of the tower. This was installed at a depth of 25-metres.
