Draft proposal for an Offshore Metmast for Renewable Energy — •Jörg Bendfeld, Martin Tigges, and Michael Splett — Universität Paderborn / WUZ, Paderborn, Deutschland
The principal objective is to show a draft proposal for an Offshore Metmast. The main purpose will be the measurement of the climate offshore for the installation of renewable energy converter. Such installations have to meet high standards:
*The distance to the coast is more than 20 km
*The water depth is between 20 m and 40 m.
*The measuring platform has to work almost completely autarkically because frequent maintenance would extremely force up costs.
This also includes eco-friendly energy supply with a backup system. It is reasonable to carry out both oceanographic and meteorological measurings. A high availability of data is important. The costs must be in line with the budget. Consequently measurement technology and energy supply have to comply with particular requirements: The measuring instruments must ensure reliability. For there is no frequent possibility to compare the measurements with neighbouring measurements the choice of measuring instruments should guarantee diverse but proven measurement technology application.
