Hyderabad: Mytrah Energy (India) (MEIPL), an independent power producer, has erected and commissioned the tallest met mast (160m) in the Asia Pacific at Kayathar in the Tuticorin belt, Tamil Nadu.
With this, MEIPL broke its own record of installing a 150m mast, which was set in October, and was the tallest such mast commissioned in India and the second tallest in Asia. Since then, MEIPL has installed 150m masts across Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat.
“Power output depends on the size and height of turbines. Larger wind turbines lead to cost-effective power generation. Mytrah’s commissioning of this met mast reflects its focus on developing technological tools for revolutionising the renewable energy sector in the country.” said, Vikram Kailas, vice chairman & MD, MEIPL.
The met mast has five wind speed monitoring levels (160m, 140m, 120m, 90m,50m), three wind direction monitoring levels (138m, 118m and 88m), two temperature monitoring levels (160m and 10m) and one pressure sensor level (10m).
