Types Of Towers
Aeolos provided three types of towers for different model wind turbines: Guyed tower, Lattice tower and Mono tower. Each tower has its own advantage and disadvantage in the cost, efficiency, installation and maintenance. So it is difficult to say which one is the best tower for a wind turbine system. You may choose the package of our recommend tower and wind turbine or choose the tower according to your local situation.
Aeolos Wind Turbine Guyed Tower:
Guyed tower was made by narrow steel pipe and supported by guy wires. It is usually used for 500w to 5kw wind turbines.   The height of guyed tower is usually from 6m to 18m.
Advantage: the lowest cost solution and easy installation.
Disadvantage: not easy climbable for inspections or repairs. Require more land than mono pole tower.
Aeolos Wind Turbine Lattice Tower:
Lattice towers were made by welded steel profiles. It is usually used for 3kw to 20kw wind turbines. The height of lattice tower is usually from 12m to 36m.
Advantage: Medium cost solution and easy maintenance.
Disadvantage: Perceived unattractive and not easy to delivery.
Aeolos Wind Turbine Mono Tower
Mono pole tower also named free standing tower.   It was made by steel pipe with a free standing design. It was used for 3kw to 50kw wind turbines. The height of mono tower is usually from 12m to 36m.
Advantage: Good look and best quality
Disadvantage: Most expensive solution and not easy to maintenance.
Local rules may impose height restrictions to wind towers: rules imposing maximums of 40 or 60 feet / 12-18 meters are common, which may have a negative impact on the electric power generated by wind turbines. Pay attention to local rules before you choose Aeolos wind turbine towers.

wind turbine towers: height and Types
The same small turbine can increase its power output by 30% or more if the height of its tower is 30m/100 feet instead of 18m/60 feet.
The turbine towers are an important element of any wind...
