RES informed Power Engineering International that the mast has been successfully gathering data for the last 3 months for the 389 MW DONG Energy and Scottish Power Renewables-owned Irish Sea project.

GeoSea installed the Met Mast, using jack-up vessel Innovation while RES specialist instrumentation engineers designed and installed the instrumentation and communication systems.

Charlie Jordan, ScottishPower Renewables Project Director said, the data, now available via the Met Mast, will be incredibly valuable as a key performance management tool that will effectively support the optimised performance of the wind farm.”
