Concrete Tower Reduces Energy Cost
Siemens has announced the commercial launch of a concrete wind turbine tower technology that places turbines in stronger winds at higher altitudes – resulting in more potential energy production and increased project revenue for customers. This technology is part of an ongoing commitment to using innovation to expand wind power in the United States and around the globe.
Siemens partnered with Wind Tower Technologies of Boulder, CO, for engineering and construction methodologies. A unique feature of this patented tower system is the on-site match casting of annular precast tower segments, eliminating the need to grout the joints or provide other special surface treatments between tower sections.
