Standard wise, the steel is hot dip galvanized according to EN ISO 1461.
Painting on top of the galvanizing in various colours is possible.
The design criteria:
EN 1993-3-1 – Design of steel structures – Towers and masts,
EN 1991-1-4 – Actions on structures – Wind actions.
IEC 61400-12-1 – Power Performance Measurements.
For tall and slim structures, like meteorology towers, ice load is of great importance. Site specific environmental loads like wind- and ice loads are taken into account during design.
Normally a traditional Pier & Pad foundation is designed and casted for a MET tower.
Carl C. can assist with the design, if required, based on site specific geotechnical specifications.
