The X Factor: Here’s What It Takes To Build The Tower For The World’s Most Powerful Offshore Wind Turbine

Some 6 million people from around the world travel to Paris each year to climb Gustave Eiffel’s eponymous tower. Industrial engineer Daniel Castell is now working on a structure that will also reach great heights. An engineering marvel in its own right, chances are that very few people will ever see it — but millions will benefit from it.

Castell and his team at GE Renewable Energy in Barcelona, Spain, and his team are designing a special tower for the Haliade-X 12 MW, the world’s most powerful offshore wind turbine. One 12-megawatt turbine will be capable of powering the equivalent of 16,000 European homes. Hundreds of them, sitting atop Castell’s towers, could soon dot the blustery coastlines of Europe and other continents, just beyond the horizon from beachgoers... ...
