An improved Modular Wooden Tower Design

Presented by Marco Ogno, Adam Lord and Giacomo Senatore.

Montes Claros, Brazil. After the wooden tower lifting failure in 2015, two years later Adam,
Giacomo and Marco delivered a workshop for fixing and improving the design of the wooden
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
be addressed.
