New wind tower

GE has bought a taller wind turbine tower technology from Wind Tower Systems (WTS), LLC. The need for taller, cost-efficient towers is becoming an important factor in the wind industry as blade lengths increase.

WTS has been working on the development of the tower system technology for use at wind farm sites that require hub heights of 100 meters or more. 

 

WTS also has been developing innovative ways to transport and install these taller wind turbine towers. The technology will use standard flatbed trucks. Hi Jack system technology can eliminate the need for heavy lift cranes during installation. These new technologies offer the ability to cost effectively extend the tower height, which in turn enables the turbine to produce more energy.
