On June 28th, a Workshop will take place in London for presenting the results of the European Project SHOWTIME, supported by the RFCS programme and to which Sidenor R&D has participated

The project was aimed at developing a new system for erecting large hybrid wind towers (up to 220 m) comprising a conventional ferrule for the upper part and a tubular structure for the lower part. The participation of Sidenor R&D focused on the use of two types of fasteners manufactured using the EXTREME technology. Both types have met the requirements of ISO898-1 standard for 10.9 fasteners and allowed to improve fatigue performance compared with the standard reference 32CrB4.

Detailed information on the Workshop and the registration form are available on the website of the Steel Construction Institute (
