The 60m XHD TallTower is a highly versatile meteorological tower designed specifically for wind resource assessment. Ice-rated for cold climates, this tower exceeds EIA-222-F standards.

We engineered the 60m XHD TallTower based on decades of experience in creating and manufacturing tilt-up towers for the global wind energy industry. NRG towers are built strong for durability and extreme weather survival. Designed for efficient delivery and installation around the globe, our towers are ready to ship days after your order is placed. We offer free surface shipping to any destination within the contiguous United States, as well as most major ports worldwide.

FAA-compliant industrial paint, guy guards, marker balls, and obstruction lighting and monitoring systems are available to ensure that your tower complies with visibility requirements. Please review your local regulations and contact our sales team to discuss which option would be best for your location.

The Install Kit | 60m HD, 50m XHD, 60m XHD TallTowers™, which includes a ginpole and winch, is sold separately and required for installation.

  • Strong steel tube construction
  • Compact Envirocrate™ packaging for ease of transport and assembly with minimal waste on site
  • Reinforced steel base plate—no concrete foundation required
  • Optional FAA-compliant industrial painting

"KB Energy has installed over 800 NRG Systems towers in the last 15 years. We have never seen a meteorological tower survive the tornado wind speeds of 165+ mph that the 60m XHD withstood when Laramie, WY, was hit with a tornado on May 22, 2008."
