Transmission Towers

You can increase productivity of modeling all kinds of transmission and telecommunication towers and substation gantries, from creating the foundation plan to designing the tower layout and detailing the connections. Optimize your production and reduce errors in fabrication and erection with a new, higher level of collaboration and automation.

Effective estimation and design

An as-built 3D prototype allows you to speed up estimation and design process and create more accurate bids. Because Tekla’s tower template and components bring efficiency to detailing you can avoid time-consuming manual work and human errors.

Solution that benefits the entire tower project

With Tekla software you can produce an accurate 3D model of the whole tower: foundations, tower body, cage, cross arms and peak plus bracings, ladders, platforms, and body and leg extensions. The 3D model is the go-to source for quantities, drawings and project scheduling. The model interfaces with MIS systems and CNC machinery while the software integrates with the leading tower analysis solutions and complies with industry standard formats.

Smooth project management

Engineers, detailers, project managers, and other parties can view or control the model simultaneously because everyone has access to reliable project information throughout the entire project lifecycle. Conflicts get exposed already during modeling, not on site. Centralized model data enables collaborative and integrated way to manage and deliver projects. Quality control is assured as the information, including assembly drawings and lists of materials, is easy to access and always up to date. Smooth change management and revision control minimize costly errors.

Benefits

  • Accurate, as-built 3D models
  • Smooth integration with analysis & design
  • Efficient design and detailing
  • Linking to production machinery
  • Installation scheduling
  • Estimate: Easy-to-use modeling tools offer quick, accurate estimates that help you to create accurate bids
  • Design: Interface with analysis packages and enhance productivity with customizable modeling and detailing tools
  • Schedule and manage projects: Utilize Tekla’s project management tools or combine reliably to other scheduling solutions
  • Manufacture: Export the fabrication data directly to workshop machinery and reduce human errors
  • Erect: Create erection drawings, planning schedules and erection simulations

Optimize delivery and erection

You can plan the erection, deliveries and material use to the level of bolt quantities and even the need for labor with the up-to-date model information. Simulated erection sequences show the correct fit up methodology. This all leads to greater control over costs and schedules also during the erection phase.

Optimize your production and reduce errors in fabrication and erection with a new, higher level of collaboration and automation.

Automate output creation

Precise drawings and reports can be automatically generated from the constructable, as-built 3D model. As the drawings are associated with the model, changes are automatically reflected. You can transfer data directly from the model to estimating, scheduling, procurement and production management.

Less waste and fewer errors in fabrication

The information in Tekla models lets you increase productivity and avoid human errors through higher level of automation in fabrication. CNC machines can use the exported information directly from Tekla, while the two-way interface of Tekla and the leading MIS/PLM systems allows advanced production planning and material procurement.

Tower template and connection library

A comprehensive library of intelligent standard tower components and connections allows you to quickly create constructable, as-built 3D models. When you need non-standard items, just create and store these for re-use in coming projects.

We offer services close to you. Enjoy local support, training, consultation and online services like Tekla User Assistance.

We plan the software implementation together with the customer which helps them save money and time, ensuring effective use of the software. Our experienced local staff will find the solutions that best suit your company's needs.

We constantly test and develop Tekla Structures. The industry uses it to create, combine and distribute highly detailed, accurate and information-rich structural models. The models provide open, readable data for manufacturing and for exporting to other solutions. Although Tekla is ready to use those who wish can customize it.

Tekla software works with all materials, so a model can include steel, precast and cast-in-place concrete, timber and any other material. Knowing the structures of the other project parties ensures that your parts fit together with everything else.  Also, the structural steel detailing software comes with a library of design details and users can model, store and share custom components like specific connections.
