Blackpool wind system installed

Blackpool wind system installed

"Blackpool wind system complete!"

The new airfield wind system installation at Blackpool International Airport was completed on 12 June 2014 by an engineering team from MetEngUK.

Although intended for installation some months earlier, unavoidable delays were introduced by the requirement for the airport authorities to complete a Safety Case before the old wind system could be de-commissioned.

The new system has been based around Vaisala's WD50 averaging wind display units, receiving data from a WAC155 wind data transmitter and standard WA wind sensors, co-located with Met Office wind equipment on a lowerable 10-metre anemometer tower.
