11.01.2019 Dismantling concrete hybrid towers

Deutsche Windtechnik has successfully dismantled two Enercon E-82 turbines with 98-m prefabricated concrete towers, thereby successfully handling a very special type of pilot project. On behalf of the energy supplier innogy, a dismantling concept was tested in the Netherlands that was specially developed for this type of turbine. The method is currently unique in the industry. “The goal of the project was to further develop our technical expertise for the 3-MW class as well as to test a cost-efficient demolition method for prefabricated concrete towers. The results show that we are well prepared for dismantling projects that involve the next generation of turbines,” said Lars Vogler, project manager at Deutsche Windtechnik.

During the dismantling process, the concrete towers and foundations were removed after the turbine components had been disassembled and the surrounding areas were restored. “We are pleased with the good cooperation with Deutsche Windtechnik in this innovative project. The dismantling was carried out on schedule and without major incidents,” innogy Wind Power Netherlands said in a company statement.
