Wind ABC


Selecting the correct tower is an important first step in the installation of a wind turbine. The Tower must be of sufficient height to position the turbine in unobstructed airflow and be designed to withstand the loadings produced by extremes in weather. Since many wind turbine installations are in remote locations the ability to erect a tower without cranes or heavy lifting equipment is a great advantage. This will reward the installer and maintainer with large cost savings

Our Tower Types

The tower on which a wind turbine is mounted is not just a support structure. It also raises the wind turbine so that its blades safely clear the ground and so it can reach the stronger winds at higher elevations. Maximum tower height is optional in most cases, except where zoning restrictions apply. The decision of what height tower to use will be based on the cost of taller towers versus the value of the increase in energy production resulting from their use.
