RES and Modvion to work together

RES and Modvion have signed a letter of intent to include Modvion’s wooden wind turbine towers in future wind energy projects.

RES Nordics will promote Modvion’s modular, wood-based, tower technology to their wind turbine suppliers in the hope, for the turbine manufacturers to purchase wooden towers to use in RES developed wind farms. Modvion will supply RES-developed wind farms with around 20 towers per year from 2026 to 2036. This represents an order for Modvion of around 4 billion Swedish krona.

Switching from emission intensive materials, like steel and concrete, to a renewable material like wood enables drastic reductions in emissions. The wood also stores carbon, so the tower acts as a carbon sink, thereby reducing emissions for the entire turbine by 30%. 

“Innovative solutions that make our renewable energy projects even more sustainable is something that we want to promote,” said Matilda Afzelius, CEO at RES in the Nordics. “RES has committed to the Science Based Target Initiative which focuses on halving emissions before 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions before 2050 and innovations such as Modvion’s are beneficial for reaching such targets.” 

Modvion’s patented innovation is also beneficial when it comes to building tall towers, something the industry is striving for. Laminated wood is stronger than steel at the same weight, so building with wood means lighter towers and less need for expensive reinforcements. The towers are built in modules that can be easily transported on standard trucks on public roads, without the need for road-closures.
