Title: CONNECTING ELEMENT AND METHODS FOR CONNECTING PARTIAL RING SEGMENTS
Abstract:
The invention relates to a connecting element (300, 300', 300") for use in a wind turbine tower section (200). The invention further relates to a wind turbine tower section (200) and to a wind turbine tower. The invention further relates to a wind turbine (100) and to methods for connecting partial ring segments (210, 220). The connecting element (300, 300', 300") comprises a first side wall (310, 310', 310") having a first opening (312, 312', 312") that can be penetrated by a fastening element, a second side wall (320, 320', 320") lying opposite the first side wall and having a second opening (322, 322', 322") that can be penetrated by a fastening element, an upper transverse wall (330, 330', 330") having two upper openings (332, 332', 334), each of which can be penetrated by an assembly fastening element, and a lower transverse wall (340, 340', 340") lying opposite the upper transverse wall and having two lower openings (342, 344, 344'), each of which can be penetrated by an assembly fastening element, wherein the upper and lower transverse walls (330, 330', 340, 340', 340") are arranged substantially orthogonal to the first and second side walls (310, 310', 310", 320, 320', 320") and connect the first and second side walls.
