Modvion and Vattenfall have signed a letter of intent to enter into a business development project for evaluating building technology and commercialisation with the aim of supplying wooden towers to Vattenfall.
Approximately one quarter of the climate impact that arises when manufacturing wind turbines comes from the tower, normally constructed of steel and sometimes concrete. By building towers of wood, the carbon dioxide emissions caused by manufacturing can be reduced, while the carbon dioxide absorbed by trees as they grow is also stored in the wooden towers. In addition, certified sustainable wood raw material is used, which means, among other things, that new trees are planted. Vattenfall's portfolio has the potential of approximately 5000 MW for projects on land, under development or in the process of being built on its various markets.
