Update on #40C Sensor Shipments

Recommended Posts

For some time now we have been studying and checking NRG #40 anemometer tolerances and manufacturing processes in tremendous detail to understand what has been causing some of the sensors to intermittently underreport wind speed. 

 Recently we reported that a vibratory mode had been identified as the cause of the slow down. As a result of our analysis and testing, we have revised the specifications of certain materials and tightened the tolerances of certain dimensions of the sensor.  These improvements have eliminated the vibratory mode in test sensors in our laboratory. We have further validated these improvements in wind tunnel tests and in limited field tests. Final validation of these improvements must await the results of longer term field data which will take another 6 to eight weeks.

We are confident, based upon the results of our laboratory testing, that these changes have a high potential to significantly reduce the probability that a sensor will degrade in the field. Therefore, we believe that it is appropriate to integrate these modifications into the NRG#40 immediately.  As of January 5, 2009, all sensors will ship with the improvements.

To the NRG Technical Support,

Our company, Misibis Resort and Management, Inc. BOUGHT TWO UNITS of NRG-NOW System 50m sets of wind mast in July 2007, and another TWO units in June 2008. these units  have not yet been installed until our consultant, GARRAD HASSAN, suggested that # 40c Anemometer has technical problem.

In view of the above, can you replace our anemometers without costs on our part. Request your advise on this matter.

please email me at mccaliva@sunwet.com.ph 

thanks and regards.

 We bought 10 kits of anemometers from a sale representant in Brazil. Five (5) towers already were installed, but there are others five (5) not installed yet.

Can you replace this anemometers not used yet? Are there costs of shipment to do this?
