Squalls control design wind conditions offshore West Africa, where the wind regime is otherwise relatively benign. The West Africa Gust (WAG) Joint Industry Project was initiated in 2004 to make best use of available industry data for characterisation of squalls in engineering design. The WAG phase one report highlighted the need for further measurement to address uncertainties in the horizontal and vertical structure of squall winds. This paper describes the resulting measurement system installed on a platform offshore West Africa.
