Very high towers, very big challenges
Our client entrusted us with the mandate to manufacture the highest and heaviest wind turbine towers ever made in America, with a height of 134 meters (440 feet) and a weight of 450 tons (450,000 kg). The project consisted of 87 towers of 7 sections each for a total of 609 sections to be delivered in a limited time.
To carry out this project, we used two of our wind turbine manufacturing plants, those in Matane and Trois-Rivières. To optimize the production of these new towers, we modified the production line to adapt it to the new thickness of plates and added a specialized production line.
Our teams in Trois-Rivières and Matane worked closely together and were innovative in carrying out this project. We delivered towers of exceptional quality on time, to the great satisfaction of the customer.
