Offshore Met Masts
A measurement tower or measurement mast, also known as meteorological tower or meteorological mast (met tower or met mast), is a free standing structure used to measure weather conditions as temperature, wind speed, etc. These structures could also benefit of ultrasonic peening treatment carried out on site if and when required. That could be done as a fatigue life extension or as a remedial procedure.
These structures could benefit of the ultrasonic peening treatment already at the construction and assembling stage at the workshop. Alternatively fatigue sensitive attachments or weld connection could be treated on station in order to extend their original fatigue design life.
