NRG Systems announced that its longtime partner, Mumbai-based RK Systems, has supplied and erected India’s tallest lattice met tower.
Commissioned June 2017 in Southern India, the tower stretches 150m high and features an array of NRG products, including 40C anemometers, 200P wind vanes, 110S temperature sensors, a BP20 barometric pressure sensor, and a SymphoniePRO data logger with iPackGPS for bankable, secure, and reliable data collection.
According to Your Renewable News, RK Systems created the 150m tower for one of India’s leading Independent Power Producers in renewable energy. The decision to commission the tower was spurred by the growing proliferation of taller turbines.
Arvinder Singh, NRG’s Senior Territory Sales Manager, Asia Pacific, said that RK Systems’ experience manufacturing and installing over 1,100 met towers in India and neighboring countries coupled with their ability to produce towers this tall will help the Indian wind industry grow by enabling developers to measure at increased hub-heights and, in turn, better predict energy output at a potential wind site. By incorporating NRG Systems’ measurement products into these campaigns, developers can be assured that they are collecting professional, finance-grade data.
