Spartanburg, S.C.-based Tindall Corp. has announced the awarding of $16.7 million in tax credits by the U.S. Treasury Department to provide an incentive to build a new precast concrete wind tower base manufacturing facility in Newton, Kan.
The plant will provide production facilities for the company's Atlas CTB concrete wind tower bases. The earmarked funds are from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and fall under the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Section 1302, to encourage clean energy manufacturing.
The Atlas CTB wind-tower base system boosts turbine-hub heights to 100 meters and higher. Assembled on site from precast concrete staves and tube sections, the Atlas CTB will support larger, higher turbines to capture stronger, steadier winds for improved power output.
Tindall designs and manufactures precast, prestressed concrete structural and cladding systems for mixed-use, educational, commercial, industrial, energy, wind power and parking structures; modular products for the corrections industry; and utility products.
