Each turbine takes about 8 months to build, and then installation on site will take around 15 days. The design of this tower allows for a smaller foundation with less impact on the environment. The tower itself stands at 135 meters high. The grid inverters and the control panels are located inside the the bottom of the tower. They have implemented some smart designs, that allow for high efficiency as well as low maintenance.

Unlike other towers, this one has both a service elevator and stairs that lead to the upper deck. The bearings are lubricated automatically. The direct drive systems, allows this turbine to work without a big gearbox in the nasal capsule. There is yet another control panel, that is used to control the turbine functions during maintenance.
