Structural upgrades to Met Office radar sites
14 January 2014
LARS Communications are delighted to have been awarded a contract by the Met Office for the structural upgrades of the radar sites at Hill of Dudwick in Aberdeenshire and Ingham in Lincolnshire. Work on both sites will include the installation of new staircases, platforms, refurbished radars and new radomes.
The work at the Hill of Dudwick and Ingham sites are part of a comprehensive renewal programme by the Met Office and Environment Agency to upgrade Weather Radar capability, as well as improving building and tower infrastructure to meet the latest health and safety requirements.
The Hill of Dudwick and Ingham projects follow similar structural upgrades completed by Lars at the Chenies, Castor Bay and Cobbacombe radar sites respectively.
