Deutsch: Turm / Español: Torre / Português: Torre / Français: Tour / Italiano: Torre
A tower is a tall structure, usually taller than it is wide, often by a significant margin. Towers are distinguished from masts by their lack of guy-wires.

Towers are generally built to take advantage of their height, and can stand alone on the ground, or as part of a larger structure or device such as a fortified building or as an integral part of a bridge.

In the industrial and industry context, a tower refers to a tall structure used for various purposes, such as supporting equipment, lifting heavy loads, or providing access to elevated areas. Towers can be made of various materials, including steel, concrete, aluminum, and fiberglass.

Examples of towers in the industrial and industry context include:

  • Communication towers used for supporting telecommunication and broadcasting equipment
  • Wind turbines and wind towers used for generating renewable energy
  • Cooling towers used for removing heat from industrial processes and cooling water
  • Elevated water towers used for storing and distributing water
  • Access towers used for providing access to elevated areas, such as roofs or tall structures
  • Scaffolding towers used for construction and maintenance work
  • Crane towers used for lifting heavy loads and materials
  • Power transmission towers used for supporting high voltage electrical transmission lines
  • Oil drilling towers used for drilling oil and natural gas wells.
