Ramboll will deliver a new design concept that adopts the 3D printing technology to construct wind turbine towers to GE Renewable Energy, one of the largest companies in the onshore wind market worldwide. The demand for taller wind turbine towers in the onshore wind market has led to a request for innovative tower concepts. The concepts available today are hybrid solutions made in prefabricated concrete and steel which are limited regarding geometry and weight due to transportation restrictions and require extensive manual labour for the installation. However, this is not the case in a recently won project by Ramboll for the client GE Renewable Energy in the US.

The 3D printer used in this project is developed by the Danish company, COBOD, a global leading expert within development and fabrication of 3D printers in close collaboration with Ramboll. The concrete mix will be developed by another globally leading company, Lafarge-Holcim.
3D print technology enables lower construction costs and increased quality

Using 3D print technology leads to increased value for the project and the client.

3D print technology is predicted to become one of the most central next-generation construction methods for load-bearing structures. With the new innovative design concept for wind turbine towers, Ramboll has an opportunity to help laying the foundation for this development.
