Hallencourt measurement tower

Client

OSTWIND

ROLE

Installation of an 85 m measurement tower

LOCATION

Condé-Folie (Somme, France)

DATE

February 2018

CLIENT SPECIFICS

As part of the development of the future wind farm in Hallencourt, Ostwind called upon Ponticelli, through its subsidiary GenWind, to install a wind measurement tower 84 m high.

PONTICELLI’S CHALLENGES

Ponticelli responded to Ostwind’s request by respecting the client’s area and installation schedule, with controlled costs and a competitive price.
Risks were controlled via GenWind’s own erection methods with no work at heights.

SCOPE

  • Installation of anchorages
  • Assembly of tower on the ground
  • Lifting the tower with a winch
  • Special intervention: Offset arms perpendicular to ground before lifting so the tower would not be hoisted in a windward direction

Instrumentation in compliance with standard IEC -614100-12: 2017
