There’s a wind turbine being built in the forests of Sweden — or should I say from the forests.
Budding startup Modvion, based in the Scandinavian country, is currently building the world’s tallest wooden wind turbine, and it’s on track for completion this year.
The tower will stand 105 metres and is being built for local energy utility Varberg Energi for its wind power site near the town of Skara.
A 2-megawatt turbine made by Danish wind giant Vestas will be mounted atop the wooden tower. Once the rig gets up and running it could power around 500 homes.
