December 30, 2016
MEGAJOULE is now operating its 350th met mast in Egypt.
Since installing its first met mast, in december 2004 in Portugal, MEGAJOULE has operated met masts in 17 countries: Portugal, France, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Bulgaria, Belgium, Italy, Turkey, Macedónia, Croacia, Brazil, East Timor, Mozambique, South Africa, Morocco and Egypt.
Abílio Carvalho, director of the measurements lab at MEGAJOULE, proudly says that “Getting to this number of met masts in so many different countries and operating them achieving an average recovery rate of more than 90% of valid wind data, in all our measurements campaigns, is a clear sign of our commitment to supply our clients with a good, flexible and reliable work.”
MEGAJOULE has performed wind and solar studies for more than 28 GW of clean energy. Board Member Miguel Ferreira believes that “Cooperating with project developers since the early stages of the projects, by planning the measuring campaign, then operating met masts on client’s behalf and regularly validating the collected wind data, enables not only to assure good measuring campaign results but also a better knowledge of the project, which becomes an added value for the client when preparing the final wind assessment studies, decreasing the uncertainty associated to the annual energy production estimates”.
