The U.K.'s National Renewable Energy Centre (Narec) has chosen marine engineering provider SeaRoc to install an anemometry hub at the site of the 100 MW Blyth Offshore Wind Demonstration Site, currently under development off the coast of northeast England.

According to Narec, SeaRoc's scope of work will include the installation of a mast three nautical miles off the coast of Blyth. The center will consist of a 635-ton tripod foundation, a 100-ton platform and a 25-ton met mast to provide site wind speed measurements, according to SeaRoc, adding that the met mast will work alongside a ZephIR 300 wind LIDAR system.

The platform will collect the environmental data to inform the development, construction and operation of the wind farm and will be equipped with a variety of monitoring sensors.
