Modvion is a Swedish Engineering and Industrial Design company developing modular designs in renewable Engineered Wood Products to simplify and improve construction logistics.
The company's current area of focus is in wind tower technology. Modvion´s patented module technology enables significantly decreased cost, efficient transportation and streamlined installation of towers exceeding 120 m. Ultimately, this results in increased cost efficiency in the harvesting of wind resources.
As wind towers rise above 100 meters in height transportation poses considerable problems given that base diameters for 100+ meter towers exceed 4.3 meters, the limit for transport width in most parts of the USA and the EU.
Additionally, conventional steel tower constructions get dramatically more expensive with height due to the increasing need for thicker walls. In order to make significant returns on wind technology investments, organizations will need to drastically improve both costs and efficiency.
