The world’s first modern wind turbine to have a wooden tower has been humming since December 2012 in Hannover, Germany.
The 100-metre-high TimberTower is constructed of nearly 500 cubic metres of cross-laminated timber (CLT), half of which was provided by us.
Wood offers several attractive advantages for wind power – dynamic loads, protection against corrosion, and sustainability. Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is also a cost-efficient material that is logistically easy to transport to the site.
