Sweden's first wooden wind turbine up and spinning
Sweden has completed and launched its first wooden wind turbine tower made from sustainably sourced materials. The wooden power tower allegedly offers comparable performance to traditional wind turbines. It's hoped the tower will provide cheaper and greener solutions for renewable energy in the country. Following TimberTower's world's first wooden wind turbine in Hanover, Germany, the new wooden wind tower in Sweden was developed by Modvion, a Swedish engineering firm. There are many benefits to this new wooden design compared with typical steel wind towers; it's cheaper and lighter. Steel towers have thick bases, which make them expensive to manufacture and transport, as loadsize rules on public roads often make it difficult.
