Versatile measurement services for industrial and energy production processes

For emission measurements, our teams run a testing T062 laboratory (accreditation requirement SFS-EN ISO/IEC 17025), which is accredited for flue and process gas measurements by FINAS, the Finnish Accreditation Service.

AFRY’s accredited reference methods encompass, for example, the following emission measurements:

  • particles
  • oxides of nitrogen and sulphur
  • carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide
  • hydrogen chloride and hydrogen fluoride
  • hydrocarbons
  • ammonia
  • PCDD/F and PCB compounds
  • mercury and metals
  • QAL-2 and AST measurements
  • oxygen and moisture content of flue gas and volume flow

    We also assess the following:

    • odorous sulphur compounds (both TRS and separate compounds)
    • chlorophenoles and PAH compounds
    • chlorine and chlorine dioxide
    • fine particles (PM1.0, PM2.5 and PM10)
    • filterable and condensable particulate matter.

    Our expertise is, in addition, utilised in process optimisations,  combustion tests of new fuels, development of emission measurement systems and emission calculations.

    Wind Energy Measurements Arrow pointing right

    AFRY has carried out over 200 projects for wind potential, wind farm follow-up and turbine power performance data in the past 20 years

    On-site wind measurements are carried out on-shore and off-shore following industry best practices and quality standards. (IEC 61400 12 1, Measnet)

    Wind measurements are performed once the preliminary analysis for the wind power project has been completed. As a rule of thumb, measurement campaigns last at least one full calendar year as a reliable production potential requires comprehensive and long-term measurement data.

    We offer wind measurements for any size and need ranging from met masts with heights from 100 to 200 metres, to state of the art SoDar and LiDar measurement units.

    All our mast installations feature calibrated and certified first class instruments, where AFRY will suggest reliable and bankable set-ups depending on mast and terrain layouts.

    Our wind measurements are always offered as a turn key solution

    AFRY will deal with every aspect of the measurement campaign including:

    • campaign planning
    • mast and equipment installation
    • commissioning and decommissioning
    • maintenance
    • permits
    • civil work
    • monitoring and reporting

    Our expertise in arctic areas provides the knowledge to assure high quality data regardless of the proposed location

    For wind farms already in operation, we can assist with:

    • power curve measurements
    • consulting services regarding operation and maintenance
    • performance guaranteee assessments

    In addition we'll be happy to help with early stage development planning, site assessments, wind analysis and energy yield assessments to complement any measurement campaign.
