MEGATRO provides customized Meteorological Towers in every phase of project realization and ensures that high quality work is carried out on schedule and at low cost. We offer comprehensive solutions to match the special requirements of each organization, aiming for absolute customer satisfaction.
All our Meteorological Towers are marked by quality construction and superior strength, and are suitable for a wide range of demanding applications in communication infrastructure.
MEGATRO design the triangular meteorological tower as per client requirements. The tower consists of separate metal parts connecting with each other ( by screw bolts) and with triangular section and lattice tower fixed by steel wires in four or more levels and from three sides around the tower to support it by fixing points .
Meteorological sensors will be placed on each tower at some levels to some meters height as per client requirements in addition to setting a column length of one meter at the top of the tower to be the upper end then placed wind speed sensor on it .
Our Meteorological Towers is fabricated by solid steel pipe with angle or bracing members, which provides great strength, low weight and wind resistance, and economy in the use of materials. Lattices of triangular cross-section are most common, and square lattices are also widely used. After fabrication all towers are delivered to the galvanizing facility to be Hot DIP Galvanized. Towers are processed through the facility by Caustic Cleaning, Pickling, and then Fluxing. These strict procedures insure years of maintenance free towers.
MEGATRO provide Meteorological Towers design with below requirements
Design Requirements and Basic of Design
MEGATRO TOWERS will guarantee the overall safety of the tower. MEGATRO TOWERS will submit design calculation report for member design of tower and overall structural stability of the structure, which is signed by a charted structural Engineer.
MEGATRO will supply the skeleton to scale, showing the assembly of the structures, the antenna mounting levels, other detail drawings etc.
The calculation method to be adopted for tower design will be decided by MEGATRO TOWERS with the consent of the client.
All materials will comply with GB, BS, JIS or equivalent standards. The permissible stress of the materials will comply with GB, EN or BS, the standards adopted for all materials will be stated separately.
General Design Criteria
Mast will be designed based on GB, BS 8100, TIA/EIA-222-G-2006, IS 802 & IS875 or equivalent international standards.
MEGATRO submit the complete data showing the drag factor from various angles of wind on the antenna offered.

As the world’s energy companies continue to develop alternative energy sources like wind energy, Nello will be at the forefront to accommodate their needs. Our meteorological towers (MET towers) have helped develop some of the largest wind farm projects in the world including:
· Shepherd’s Flats Wind Farm in Oregon
· Thumb Winds, Michigan
· Santa Isabel Wind in Puerto Rico
· Alta & Tehachapi Wind Farms in California
· Bobcat Bluff Wind Farm in Texas
· Solano Wind Farm in California
· Canadian Hills Wind Farm in Oklahoma
From true temporary MET assessment towers deployed in remote locations to permanent self-supporting and guyed structures tasked to monitor the wind on the farms, Nello is the industry leader. We specialize in lattice towers from 60 meters to over 100 meters in height. Wherever the project, whatever the boom loading required, whatever tower type needed…Nello delivers the right MET tower.
All Nello towers and foundations are custom designed by our in-house staff of professional engineers to the latest EIA/TIA-222 codes available. We can design and engineer towers for all 50 states, Canada, and throughout the world. In addition, guyed MET towers can be purchased in 10 foot or 20 foot sections for ease of construction or to access remote areas. All of our towers are hot dip galvanized per ASTM 123 standards and each structure goes through a rigorous quality inspection program. Need FAA paint or lighting? No problem, Nello can include it in your tower order. Contact us today to learn more about our MET towers or to request a quote.
