1kW TURBINE TOWER KIT

Our tower kit is designed to be strong and easy to assembly. With the use of special ground anchors, no concrete or foundations are required and the tower can be relocated if required. The tower is raised and lowered using a Gin-Pole of standard scaffolding tube dimensions.
The kit comprises of all the components (excluding standard galvanized scaffolding tube*)required to raise your 1 KW FuturEnergy wind turbine (not supplied with the tower kit) to a maximum height of 8 meters. The kit includes ground anchors that have been specified to meet the required loading capacity calculated from EN-61400 to withstand 50-year maximum wind speeds when installed in most ground conditions.
The kit also includes tube and Gin-Pole couplings, galvanized wire rope assemblies with tensioners, brackets and full instructions for assembly.
*Galvanized scaffolding tube (48.5mm O/D x 5mm Wall) is available from builders merchants. 2 X 3m and 1 X 2m lengths are required for the maximum 8m height.
