WeatherFile added at Moneypoint

moneypointRichard Paul Russell have added another location to its WeatherFile network with the Moneypoint power station located on the River Shannon near Kilrush, County Clare, Ireland’s largest electricity generation station with an output of around 915 MW.
The client operates large tower cranes on rails to unload coal from visiting vessels; these cranes require wind monitoring equipment to deliver live accurate data independent of local Wi-Fi or LAN network. This data is critical for the safe operation of the cranes and the data needed to be viewable by on-site and off-site personnel responsible for operation limits.
Richard Paul Russell Ltd used the WindSonic 1 solid-state ultrasonic sensor that has many advantages over conventional cup anemometers and vane sensors. Having no moving parts that can jam, break or wear out makes it the sensor of choice for harsh weather conditions and remote locations when you need to know you can just fit and leave without fear of failure or damage that occurs with traditional cup and vane sensors.
This sensor was connected to our WeatherFile Mobile Unit (WMU) which allows data to be gathered directly from the Gill WindSonic 1 sensor and sent to our WeatherFile website, the result is cable free live data through WeatherFile completely independent of the buildings local internet increasing security as it separates it from the customers own Wi-Fi network or LAN and any associated security risks. This data can then be viewed through the public internet through any device including PC, tablet and smart phone with the additional functionality of email alerts if certain wind speed and direction parameters are exceeded.
Richard Paul Russell Ltd have over 20 years of experience in supplying wind monitoring equipment to the tower crane market providing complete solutions to meet individual client needs.

Richard Paul Russell Ltd has recently extended their WeatherFile network in the Solent with the addition of a Gill MaxiMet GMX200 sensor at Ryde Pier

Richard Paul Russell Ltd has recenDSC_7213 edittly extended their WeatherFile network in the Solent with the addition of a Gill MaxiMet GMX200 sensor at Ryde Pier.

This takes the Solent network to five and is an essential resource for sailors, water sport enthusiasts and others wishing to have live and accurate wind speed and direction measurements.

The MaxiMet range of compact weather stations is designed and manufactured by Gill Instruments. MaxiMet products use reliable, high quality instruments to provide accurate meteorological information in a wide variety of applications. The Gill MaxiMet GMX200 sensor at Ryde Pier has a built in compass that will always find north thus increasing further accuracy regardless of sensor movement.

One of the main challenges Richard Paul Russell Ltd faced when fitting this unit was to overcome the lack of a local power supply and Wi-Fi internet access. Our newly developed WeatherFile Mobile Unit (WMU) allows data to be gathered directly from the Gill MaxiMet GMX200 sensor and sent to our WeatherFile website. This was locally powered through a deep cycle leisure battery (70Ahr) connected to a solar panel. The result is cable free live data through WeatherFile completely independent of mains power and local internet.

Further applications for this system could include weather monitoring and warning from isolated locations, construction industry, including crane operations, health and safety site operations, marine and offshore, wind farm surveying, roads, bridges and tunnels, agriculture and horticulture, sports and outdoor activities, education and research projects, remote airfields and many others.

Another key feature is the use of the mobile network to transfer the wind and weather data to WeatherFile.com, this separates it from the customers own Wi-Fi network and any associated security risks.
