📢 SET100 News: 2022 #SETAward winner, Modvion to build world's tallest wooden wind turbine tower! Modvion, a Swedish #greentech company, constructs a 105-meter wind turbine tower made entirely of wood, the tallest of its kind, for energy company Varberg Energi. This is the first time that Modvion’s tower technology will be paired with a turbine from Vestas, also a shareholder in Modvion since 2021. What's unique about Modvion? 🌲 By switching to a wooden tower, carbon emissions are dramatically reduced during manufacturing, and the material itself stores carbon. This results in a carbon negative component, storing more CO² than is emitted during production. 🌲 The laminated wood that the modules are made from has a better strength-to-weight ratio than the types of steel used for wind turbine towers, enabling lighter towers. The patented modular design allows for simple transportation on standard roads, without the need for lengthy permit procedures. Read more about Modvion's innovative wooden wind turbine tower here 👉
