Nabralift 160m Tower Prototype Installation

Last September 3rd, 2018, in Eslava (Navarra, northern Spain), the installation of the first Nabrawind tower was completed. The height of the first prototype is 160m, becoming the tallest metallic wind turbine tower installed in the world until now. The main innovative feature of the Nabralift tower technology lies in its patented installation system, a new self-erecting process using hydraulic jacks on the ground. This allows the tower to be elevated by introducing new modules at ground level.The tower is composed of smaller elements, which eliminates the need for specialised trucks and cranes. This new system signifies huge advances for the logistics of transport and assembly of the tower.
