Title
(EN) METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A TELESCOPING WIND TURBINE TOWER STRUCTURE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE FABRICATION D'UNE STRUCTURE DE TOUR D'ÉOLIENNE TÉLESCOPIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A method for manufacturing a tower structure of a wind turbine includes printing, via an additive printing device, a plurality of concentric sections of the tower structure of the wind turbine. The concentric sections may be printed simultaneously from concrete, may include tensioning cables or other structural supports, and may define other support flanges or overhangs. After curing, the method may include raising an inner section of the plurality of concentric sections to a top of an adjacent outer section and joining the two sections. This process may be repeated to telescope the concentric sections and raise the tower structure.
(FR)
Procédé de fabrication d'une structure de tour d'une éolienne comprenant l'impression, par l'intermédiaire d'un dispositif d'impression additive, d'une pluralité de sections concentriques de la structure de tour de l'éolienne. Les sections concentriques peuvent être imprimées simultanément à partir de béton, peuvent comprendre des câbles de tension ou d'autres supports structuraux, et peuvent définir d'autres brides ou porte-à-faux de support. Après durcissement, le procédé peut comprendre l'élévation d'une section interne de la pluralité de sections concentriques jusqu'à une partie supérieure d'une section externe adjacente et l'assemblage des deux sections. Ce processus peut être répété pour télescoper les sections concentriques et élever la structure de tour.
