Cobod is 3D printing these massive cement bases that allow for much taller wind turbines (these are the big windmills you see collecting wind energy and turning it into electrical power).
This 10 meter base (over 30 ft) might allow us to build turbines that tower taller than the Seattle space needle.
By breaking free of the diameter constraints of the prefabricated metal segments usually used for wind turbine towers, GE and Cobod hope to break records for how high and efficient their wind turbines are.
The BOD2 construction 3D printer can make a much wider base for the tower by building on site. This means the onshore tower could reach 200m. And then the blades could be longer. And that means more electrical efficiency.
