For a long time, wood was the prevalent material in the construction of wind energy plants. Only in the first half of the 20th century did steel begin to replace wood. Nowadays, wood hardly figures in the production of wind energy plants. The launch of the TimberTower will change all this.
The TimberTower is manufactured as a linked system out of glued laminated timber panels and surface components, which are assembled on-site into a closed, hollow body with a hexagonal, octagonal or dodecagonal cross section (base: 7.0 x 7.0m / top: 2.90 x 2.90m). The necessary wooden and surface elements are manufactured by leading, international partners from Germany and Austria. The PEFC certificate held by our wood suppliers guarantees that the raw material used originates from ecologically, economically and socially responsible forest management.
