Wind tower in timber construction

Hasslacher Green Tower GmbH builds first wooden wind tower

Wind power plays a crucial role in the current energy transition. The Carinthian company Hasslacher Green Tower GmbH – a subsidiary of the Hasslacher Group (Bioeconomy Austria network partner) – is developing a solution that will soon enable the resource-intensive towers made of steel and concrete to be built largely of wood. The research-intensive project is now just about to be realised, also thanks to many years of FFG support.

Holzcluster Steiermark, which is responsible for setting up the hub in southern Austria in the Bioeconomy Austria project, has written a comprehensive article on the subject.
