"Construction is underway in Sweden on a 105-metre wind turbine tower made
entirely from wood, a milestone for Swedish wood technology company Modvion.
Upon completion, the tower will be Modvion’s first commercial installation and
will be the tallest of its kind in the world.
A 2MW turbine will be mounted atop the turbine produced by leading Danish wind
turbine manufacturer Vestas, who is also an investor in Modvion.
This milestone also marks the first time Modvion’s wooden tower technology will
be paired with a Vestas wind turbine.
The tower and turbine are expected to begin operations before the end of the
year and will be operated by energy company Varberg Energi, in the municipality
of Skara in Sweden."
