"The high quality and adaptability of the equipment are the benchmark of PERI. Basically, every component of the VST Tower is manually adjustable to fit our requirements for a flawless assembly. 

Most importantly, PERI cares about our needs. We received enormous support from all departments especially the engineering team, who provided us with competent and professional technical advice throughout."

PERI solution

PERI provided a total of 60 VST towers, with heights varying from 6.50m to 15.50m and an average leg load of 600kN. Several non-standard configurations were done, notably, double legged towers where two legs had 15m and two had 6.50m and towers with very small dimension in plan view.

PERI performed preassembly work at the stockyard to follow a just-in-time delivery schedule and an on-site supervisor was arranged. Optimal services were provided to the client.
