Ventera offers Monopole towers with optional hydraulic lifting mechanism or gin pole accessories in tower heights of 50, 70, 90, and 110 feet. The sleek design has a single block foundation that leaves a square slab footprint that is easy to mow and trim around. The towers are galvanized steel giving you years of durability and are warranted for 5 years against defects in materials and workmanship. This monopole design offers simplified installation in areas where cranes are not readily available or areas where access is difficult and also decreases future maintenance expenses. The motorized lifting system and gin pole are easily detachable for storage until needed.
SELF-SUPPORTING, FOLD OVER TOWER
Ventera offers the Rohn SSV line of 3 legged self-supporting towers in heights of 50, 70, 90, 110, and 130 feet including hinged feet for tilt down ease in installation and maintenance and top tube extension designed to aerodynamically minimize blade noise. The tower includes all hardware, assembly instructions and ground rods for each leg. The rugged, good looking Rohn SSV towers have been a standard in the small wind industry for 40 years. The tower is hinged at the base and the hinged base plates that go over your anchor bolts are included. Towers are galvanized and are warranted for 1 year against defects in workmanship and materials. A 5 year warranty option is also available.
When choosing a tower option the following should be considered:
- A monopole tower will be more costly and requires additional expense at the time of installation; but eliminate crane requirements therefore reducing the overall maintenance cost over the life of the wind turbine.
- A lattice tower will be less costly and requires less expense at the time of installation; but will require cranes to access the turbine and increase the overall maintenance cost over the life of the wind turbine.
