tower. The tower, which has a modular lattice structure and is 12m tall, has been lifted safely
this time, with the wind turbine installed on top for local electricity production. The webinar
will be an opportunity to present the enhanced modular wooden tower design and compare it
to the metal one. Cost out opportunities and potential further design improvements will also
