Edotco Group based in Malaysia has installed the first carbon fiber telecommunications tower in the region.
The tower which has been installed in Taman Tasik Prima, Puchong is 70% lighter than a conventional steel tower whilst being 10 times stronger. In addition the company also said it was up to 50% faster to install and the anti-corrosive will contribute towards lower maintenance costs over the lifespan of the structure.
These features result in lower total cost of ownership of 20%. As the company gains more experience in the deployment of carbon fiber towers, customisation requirements will lessen, bringing the company closer to its target of 40% in TCO reduction.
The company’s next carbon fiber installation will be a rooftop structure in Bangladesh where it will provide a solution to building constraints. edotco is investing into high quality infrastructure and encouraging tower sharing where tenancy ratio has improved to 1.3 now.
