NTNU – Skipheia Met Station
The Skipheia Met Station contains two 100 metre met masts providing data collected by ultrasonic anemometers. The site is located at the west end of the island Froya, outside Trondheim in mid Norway and is exposed to winds both from the Norwegian Sea and the mainland. It is therefore of interest to evaluate the usefulness of the measurements in order to characterise the wind conditions as representative for “on-shore” and “off-shore” wind, depending on the wind direction. In addition, it is desired to evaluate the site for a certification for a reference station for ocean observation buoys measuring wind, wave and sea current.
The site analysis of the met-station has been done in accordance with a guideline provided by the Measuring Network of Wind Energy Institutes (MEASNET). Wind data for a two-year period are presented and evaluated and compared to long-term data from a regional weather station. In the end, the long-term data are used for extrapolation of the on-site short-term measurements to a period of 15 years. For MaRINET2 an extensive data-base of wind conditions measured over a time period of +6 years is offered. Wind is measured using 12 2D ultrasonic Gill anemometers with a time resolution of 1HZ. Temperatures are also measured.
