The Company 

TimberTower GmbH will erect the first multi megawatt wind turbine on a wooden tower worldwide in Hanover (Marienwerder). Vensys Energy AG as a manufacturer of gearless wind turbines supplies a 1.5 MW turbine that will be in use in spring 2012. After 4 years of work TimberTower finally took the last permission hurdles.

Now the product is on its way to serial production. Using wood enables higher towers and a longer lifespan of the tower. In addition, wood as a renewable resource increases independence from steel prices and helps reducing the power production costs by wind energy.
