Max Bögl Wind has releases the next generation of its hybrid tower system. The hybrid towers combine concrete and steel and allow hub heights of up to 190 meters.
The new version requires less material while still ensuring the highest stability. The new foundation design simplifies pre-tensioning at the input level of the wind turbine. Higher fatigue strengths are achieved and stress peaks in the structure are further reduced. With the conical shape of hybrid towers, less tendons are necessary by optimising the load transference. The interior will now be constructed using a new procedure in which the lift and ladder are mounted during concrete tower erection. Due to the parallel installation process, assembly time is reduced. Company engineers also focused on logistics and transport: In the future almost no heavy lifting devices will be necessary to transport the individual tower segments and any standard truck can be used.
