Nordex looks back on 13 years of experience in the manufacture of concrete towers. In 2006, the first AW1500 turbine was installed on an 80 metre concrete tower in Spain. Recently the 1000th concrete tower for an AW125/3000 machine left the Brazilian factory.
The concrete towers made by the Nordex Group consist of 20 metre-long prefabricated convex segments that can be assembled on site when the wind farm is under construction, and can be "stored" vertically on the wind farm until the nacelle is mounted. As the concrete tower facility is mobile, after completion of a wind farm, the structural forms and tools can be transported to the next project within the country. Today, the Nordex Group can draw upon 11 such mobile manufacturing facilities worldwide, in Latin America, India, South Africa and Spain.
