Nabrawind starts testing the installation of the first two modules of its Self-Erecting Tower
Within the next few days Nabrawind will begin the assembly of the first two frame modules of the Nabralift tower prototype. The goal is to reproduce the process of installation at the beginning of 2018 of the real tower prototype, which will reach a height of 160 metres.
The trial will be carried out on a plot of land adjacent to the manufacturing plant located in Lekunberri. It will mark Nabrawind’s first test of a complete assembly of two tower modules.
The prototype will remain installed until the end of the year to facilitate visits by companies interested in seeing the tower in situ.
24 metres high
The measurements of each module are 12 metres high by 16 metres on the side, resulting in a total assembled height of 24 metres for this first test.
To fulfil the test, firstly the two modules are assembled, so that later one part can be elevated to install the lower part of the module, following the process patented by Nabrawind of installation without large cranes.
According to Ion Arocena, head of the Nabralift program: “This first real verification of Nabrawind’s self-erecting tower assembly marks a decisive step in the project, since it allows real-time testing of this innovative tower technology.”
