Northstar Wind Completes First Phase Of Modular Demonstration Tower


Taller Wind Towers LLC, doing business as Northstar Wind, has completed the first phase of its modular 23-meter demonstration tower, which is based on the company's tower design for large-scale wind turbines.

The multi-panel sections allow towers to be shipped on standard flatbed trucks, reducing transport logistics by up to 70%, according to the company. The tower is located near the company's headquarters in Blair, Neb.

The next phase will include the full-scale installation of a 100-plus-meter demonstration tower with a 2 MW turbine. Phase II will commence later this year, with commercial production expected to begin in 2012.
