Narec awarded SeaRoc to install Offshore Anemometry Hub
The research facility will be installed 3 nautical miles off the coast of Blyth, Northumberland next to the proposed nearest shore array of the 100MW capacity Blyth Offshore Wind Demonstration Site. Anemometry Hub has been fabricated on the River Tyne and includes a high specification research platform fitted with the latest technologies for measuring wind resource and collecting marine conditions and marine life data. It will begin measuring the wind resource for the proposed Blyth Offshore Wind Demonstration Site in October and this data will supplement the analysis of the conditions which has been undertaken over the last 2 years.
