InnoVent has taken up a new challenge: to further reduce its carbon footprint. Thus, InnoVent has developed a new concept of hybrid wood/steel mast. Hybrid masts represent a series of non-negligible advantages:
The wooden masts come from France and are produced in France
Support of the French timber sector and its President, Mr Franck Mathis
Concrete foundations are much less imposing.
The use of 205 m3 of French wood avoids the import of 97 tons of steel per wind turbine;
The recycling of these machines is also much less consequent;
The CO2 emissions for a hybrid wood/steel tower are reduced to 358.5 tons including the CO2 stored in the wood.
