XANT M is a medium-sized wind turbine that is easier to install, easier to transport and more adaptable in the landscape than a normal wind turbine. In contrast to ordinary wind turbines, the XANT M has a highly simplified structure so that less material is used during production.

The design of the tower has a semi-quadratic shape so that only a minimal amount of steel is used. Moreover, the sound is minimized by the shape, which makes this turbine the quietest in its class. As a turbine upholstery, the designers opted for recycled truck tarpaulins, which is a unique way of upcycling with renewable energy sources.

The different segments can be slided together so that the entire wind turbine can be transported to the site in a single container.
