Swedish start-up Modvion has secured €500,000 in early stage financing to develop a modular wooden tower for supporting multi-MW turbines.
Modvion’s product is a modular wind power tower made of laminated wood, designed for altitudes of over 130 metres hub-height.
The modular elements are easy to transport, and it cuts the tower cost by 40% compared with steel towers.
According to the company replacing a single 150-metre steel tower, with one made of wood, cuts 2000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.
