UK wind turbine installer Dulas has bought up the maker of meteorological masts, Chillwind.

Every wind farm has several of these so-called “met masts”, which are critical for providing data about the weather needed for running the turbines.

The deal is well-timed bearing in mind this time of “growth” for the British wind sector, say the firms.

Richard Tarves, Chillwind’s Managing Director said: ” The UK wind sector is currently undergoing a period of growth and this bringing together of knowledge and expertise will ensure that Dulas and Chillwind are ideally positioned to support the future development of the industry.”
