Wind Energy

As state subsidies are being reduced and eliminated in the wind energy market the challenge for wind turbine tower manufacturers is that they are continuously required to reduce the cost price per kWh of wind energy. To meet this challenge taller towers are erected, which significantly increases the energy yield of a wind turbine generator on sites with a high wind shear. Greenkote® TCBs are being integrated into ever taller tower designs.
