Concrete tower assembly in Chile

 

An interesting video on the use of concrete towers in Chile. Among the benefits of this solution the creation of local jobs (several hundred for factory) and the increase of local content (the amount of goods and services provided locally, an important parameter in some tenders).

Concrete towers are especially cost effective when the hub height is over 100 meters. Additionally they are less prone to price variation - steel prices, at least in Europe, dropped in 2016 to rebound in 2018.

Finally transport cost are usually lower, at least if the factory is located near the wind farm as it is usual.
