Nabrawind Technologies Begins Installation of One of World's Tallest Wind Turbine Towers

“ With this test, it will confirm in an accelerated way the performance of the tower in operation. This will improve the reliability of the structure and minimise any technical risks before the first pre-series,” said Ion Arocena, Head of the NBTECH Tower Program. This will be achieved by using a novel system that generates loads on the upper part of the tower, by oscillating it in a controlled manner, to simulate real life conditions in a short time frame. This test method, never performed to date on a wind turbine tower, was formulated during the NEVA project. The project is a collaboration with the National Renewable Energy Center of Spain and financed using FEDER funding from the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness. The new structure with its self-erecting system, which doesn’t require the use of large cranes, will enable the tower to reach height...
