Wooden Windmill Tower

374

Description

This wood mill tower is an ecological tower for windmill instead of steel. The tower is a truncated cone subdivided into three parts of 33 m aprox. Each part would be made with a vertical stud of Kerto beams. All studs would be attached, glued and screwed together. It is suggested the base of the tower of 4 m and the top of 3 m. The thickness of the tower wall would be an average of 18 cm. The same criterion of anchoring and leveling used for steel towers would apply to this wooden tower. The wood tower must be protected with oils to avoid moisture absorption, and must be covered with geotextile mesh and acrylic paint to be completely waterproof.

Key benefit

    • The association of renewable energy production with renewable material is gret iea. However, it seems material-consuming. Why not make the cross-sectin an octogon, for example, and use tapered panels? It could save material. About weather protection , there's a succesful experience of it, for both Kerto-LVL and assemblies, at the Metropol Parasol in Seville!
