Gill Instruments to debut new MetPak Base Station options at Offshore Technology Conference 2013

Gill Instruments will be exhibiting at OTC Offshore Technology Conference 2013 on 6th-9th May in Houston, Texas. Introduced in 1969, OTC is the largest technology event in its industry that focuses on the advancements in offshore equipment and resources. The annual four day conference attracts over 2,500 exhibitors and some 80,000 visitors to present cutting edge technology and innovative products from leading industry organisations. Covering a wide range of sectors including drilling, exploration and environmental protection, the conference promises to provide a unique environment to connect with industry users. Gill Instruments will display on stand #9955 their newly developed range of compact weather stations, alongside the largest range of wind sensors currently available on the market today. The MetPak range of multi-sensor weather stations has a number of new options now available, including Base Station variants with a wider choice of sensors. The new Base Station variants allow the user to specify MetPak, MetPak RG or MetPak Pro as a single unit or with a remotely mounted wind sensor from Gill’s 2-axis or 3-axis range. Additionally, MetPak RG and MetPak Pro are available with Gill’s new tipping bucket rain gauge for professional quality precipitation data. In addition to the weather station display the 2-axis and 3-axis wind sensor range will be showcased, including the popular WindSonic M ultrasonic wind speed and direction sensor. Sister company, Gill Sensors, will also be represented at OTC by US distributor, George David of Everight Sensors.  The latest range of non-contact position and liquid level sensors for harsh environments will be available to view on stand #806. If you would like more information on the new MetPak range options or on any of our products, please visit us on stand #9955 or call our sales team to arrange a meeting.



Fantastic achievement by Saildrone to gain a Guiness World Record for the highest wind speed recorded by a USV. We're very proud to say they chose a Gill WindMaster 3-axis ultrasonic anemometer as part of their Saildrone platform to measure wind speed and direction.
