Rame gets Chile wind monitor nod

UK-based Rame Energy has received an order to design and install wind monitoring equipment at Barrick Gold Corporation’s 20MW Punta Colorada wind farm in northern Chile.

Work will include the installation of an 80-metre lattice mast, instrumentation, a solar panel and a data-logger with mobile connectivity, said Rame.

The equipment will provide verification data for the wind conditions around six of the ten turbines that comprise the existing wind farm developed by Rame at the site.

This contract follows Rame's recent refurbishment of one of Barrick's existing 50-metre monitoring masts and the provision of engineering services at Punta Colorada.
