ARE TOWERS



ARE 4" Tilt-up Towers: ARE 4" tower kits are sized to accommodate ARE110 and AWP-3.6 wind turbines. They are guyed, tilt-up, pipe towers -- including couplers, end fittings, cables, rigging hardware, turnbuckles, ground anchors, and (optionally) pipe sections (4" schedule-10, galvanized pipe at 21-foot lengths). All tower components -- except pulleys and zinc-plated bolts/nuts/washers -- are galvanized.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The ARE tilt-up tower prices listed above are based on an assumption of 90-mph Basic Wind Speed and the absence of ice loading. For more severe conditions (e.g. Basic Wind Speed > 90mph or ice loading requirements), upgraded tower components may be required, which may impact tower price.

ARE 5" Tilt-up Towers: ARE 5" tower kits are sized to accommodate Proven's WT2500, Southwest Windpower's Whisper 500 & Skystream wind turbines, ARE220 (not yet released), and others. These are guyed, tilt-up, pipe towers -- including couplers, end fittings, cables, rigging hardware, turnbuckles, ground anchors, and (optionally) pipe sections (5" schedule-40, galvanized pipe at 21-foot lengths). All tower components -- except pulleys and zinc-plated bolts/nuts/washers -- are hot-dip galvanized.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The ARE tilt-up tower prices listed above are based on an assumption of 90-mph Basic Wind Speed and the absence of ice loading. For more severe conditions (e.g. Basic Wind Speed > 90mph or ice loading requirements), upgraded tower components may be required, which may impact tower price.

ALSO NOTE: Standard ARE 5" tilt-up towers DO NOT include a tower top mounting flange. For custom mounting flange prices, please contact ARE

Other Tower Options: Other tower styles -- including free-standing lattice, guyed lattice, and free-standing monopole towers -- can also be purchased through ARE. Used towers are occasionally also available (at significantly reduced prices). Prices on any of these tower options are available from ARE upon request.

Tower Hoisting Accessories: Electric Winch Hoisting Kit for Raising/Lowering 4" or 5" Tilt-up Towers - Includes worm gear power winch with 1.3 hp motor (800-2000 lbs. load rating; 8-13 fpm line speed), 8" coiling drum, 275' x 1/4" galvanized wire rope with eye termination, 3" (1.5T) pulleys (qty. 4), & 1/2" safety shackles (qty. 5), Prices $ 2,400

Selecting a Tower Size: Selecting an appropriate tower size can make a significant difference in energy production. In general, towers should be installed at such a height that the turbine's blade tips (in their lowest position) are 30 feet above all objects (buildings, trees, silos, hills, etc.) within a 500 foot radius. This will minimize turbulence encountered by the turbine, aiding the wind generator to run more smoothly, minimizing the stress on its components, and increasing the generator's life. Another very important consideration regarding tower height: the higher the tower, the faster the wind speed. When considering tower heights, therefore, bigger (taller) is definitely better. A taller tower is the best way to increase your wind generator's performance at a given site.
