WindEnergy Hamburg, the world’s largest industry event for the wind industry, is being held next week in Hamburg. Max Bögl Wind AG will be there exhibiting new advances to their hybrid towers which combine concrete and steel. The result is a tower concept that requires less material while ensuring the highest level of stability.
Wind-turbine capacity will continue to increase in the coming years. Political and economic demands make it a necessity to increase the general profitability of turbines. Those with capacities above 4 MW will become the norm and not the exception, even for onshore.
“Turbines are getting more powerful while political and economic requirements are increasing,” says Josef Knitl, Board Member of Max Bögl Wind AG. “With our new tower concept, we offer a solution for meeting future requirements and provide the basis for cost-effective wind turbines.”
With its Hybrid Tower 2.0, Max Bögl Wind AG is introducing a new generation of high-performance turbines at heights never seen before. The new tower makes it possible to achieve hub heights of up to 623 feet (190 meters) in an efficient and cost-effective way, according to the company.
Another highlight awaiting Hamburg trade fair visitors is Max Bögl’s virtual view of the world’s highest wind turbine with a hub height of 178 meters.
