GE has announced the acquisition of tower technology from Wind Tower Systems, LLC (WTS) that is expected to enable taller wind turbine towers. WTS has been working on the development of the space frame tower system technology for use at wind farm sites that require hub heights of 100 meters or more.

WTS also has been developing ways to transport and install these taller wind turbine towers. The space frame technology will use standard flatbed trucks. Hi Jack system technology can eliminate the need for heavy lift cranes during installation. Plans are underway to install a prototype of the GE’s space frame tower system technology to validate and test its design later this year with commercial availability targeted for 2012.
