Alstom to build hybrid-style wind energy tower for German company

Alstom signed a memorandum of understanding with Max Bàƒ¶gl Wind AG, a wind energy project planner and builder based in Germany.

The agreement, signed April 19, will enable the development of a 450-foot high wind tower specifically designed for Alstom’s ECO 122 onshore wind turbines.

Max Bàƒ¶gl has developed a hybrid concept for towers that uses concrete in the lower section and steel in the upper section. This design will be adapted for Alstom’s ECO122 and used for sites with low wind speeds — particularly in Germany and Northern and Eastern Europe.

This MOU will also cover a technology partnership for a new installation method. The concrete section of the tower will be pre-casted in a Max Bàƒ¶gl factory.
