Presentation and Plant Tour:
Vestas Towers
Speaker: Mr. Brian Wood


Vestas Towers, located in Pueblo, Colorado, is the largest wind tower manufacturing plant in the world. Wind towers are produced in sections (3-4 per tower) that are bolted together at the erection site. Tower sections range from 7.5 to 14 feet in diameter with lengths up to 100 feet.
Basic fabrication processes include oxy-fuel and plasma arc plate cutting and beveling, cold rolling, MGAW and DSAW welding processes.
Quality control functions include photogrammetric measurement of bolt flange flatness, and weld inspection utilizing visual testing, magnetic testing and ultrasonic testing methods. The Vestas Towers presentation and plant tour will cover these processes with primary focus on quality control.
