Sweden's first wooden wind tower is now ready on Björkö outside Gothenburg. The tower is 30 meters high and was erected by the development company Modvion . The wood construction is as strong as steel and makes the wind turbine climate neutral from the start.
As early as 2022, the first wooden towers will be built on a commercial scale. The wind power tower now erected will be used for research purposes. Modvion has signed declarations of intent with Varberg Energi for a 110 meter high tower and with Rabbalshede Kraft for 10 towers, at least 150 meters high. The 30 meter tall tower was built together with Moelven at the gluewood factory in Töreboda. The lower weight of the wood and the modular concept make it possible to build taller towers, the sections of which can be transported on public roads.
