Height: 22.5 metres / 74 feet
Units/km: 4  (6 units/mile)
Material: Composite material
Outline: Cylindrical shaft and cross-arms
Assembly: On-site and fast
Installation: Simple and inexpensive monopile foundation
Manufacturing: Production possible anywhere in the world
Development: Continuing development in collaboration with universities and commercial partners. Expected 2017/18

"The Composite Pylon entirely rethinks the design of overhead lines, making it the power pylon for the future.

- Sebastian Dollerup, Head of Power Lines,



After years of developing power pylons, the R&D team at BYSTRUP has challenged the traditional mindset of materials used in the industry.  

We are developing a radically new power pylon, made from composite material. Using this new material, it will be possible to integrate the insulators in the cross-arms, thereby reducing the height of the pylon significantly. 
The pylon will be able to carry 2x400kV or more. The shaft is fitted to a monopile that is rammed into the ground.

The pylon can be assembled on-site and erected in a single day. 

The new material will also make it possible to apply different geometries which will alter the way the pylon appears in the landscape. 


The Composite Pylon (right) is half the size of the lattice tower (left) and carries 2 x 400 kV in a single line. One composite line (2x400kV) in this case can replace two conventional lines (2x 1x400kV).

The composite pylon arm arrived at DTU for further testing. June 2017
