Mytrah Energy erects and commissions India's tallest met mast (150m).

Mytrah Energy (India) Pvt Ltd (MEIPL), India’s leading independent power producer recently erected and commissioned the country’s tallest and Asia Pacific's second tallest met mast in Maniyachi in the Kayathar-Tuticorin belt ofTamil Nadu.

Wind turbine tower heights have experienced a steady increase in the last 20 years, especially in low wind sites and in obstacle-rich environments. Taller towers generate electricity at a lower cost per kilowatt-hour as wind speed and consistency increase with altitude.The 150-meter met mash will help Mytrah perform accurate resource assessment campaigns that reduce uncertainty by capturing data at these heights.

The met mast has six wind speed monitoring levels (150m, 140m, 120m, 100m, 90m, and 50m), three wind direction monitoring levels (138m, 118m, and 48m), two temperature monitoring levels (150m and 10m) and one pressure sensor level (10m). It is a 450mmx450mm square lattice structure with square tube and has all the sensors placed according to the IEC 61400-12-1 standard for the accurate measurement of the wind speed and direction.

“We have always been pioneers in embracing technology to bring a transformation in this business. We aim to continue adopting robust technology to get the Indian wind sector on par with global peers”, said Vikram Kailas, CEO, Mytrah Energy (India) Pvt Ltd (MEIPL).

Post its successful debut in Maniyachi, MEIPL has installed similar masts in Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat as well.
