Optimized wind turbines for new hub heights

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 optimized tower concept enables hub heights of up to 190 meters and makes hybrid tower construction even more cost-effective. Visitors at WindEnergy Hamburg can experience the new tower concept at Stand 211 in Hall A4 from September 25-28, 2018.


WindEnergy Hamburg, the world’s largest industry event for wind power, is being held at the end of September. 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. Hybrid Tower 2.0 makes it possible to achieve hub heights of up to 190 meters in an efficient and cost-effective way.


New turbine generations require new tower systems


Broadly speaking, turbine capacity will continue to increase in the coming years. Political and economic demands make it a necessity to increase the general profitability of wind turbines. Turbines with capacities above 4 megawatts will become the norm and not the exception, even for onshore ones. “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.”


Virtual view of the highest wind turbine in the world


Another highlight awaiting trade fair visitors at the Max Bögl stand: You can enjoy a virtual view of the world’s highest wind turbine with a hub height of 178 meters.
