Why X.Y. Tower
Towers are not only viewed as a product, but also as a service. From lofting, fabrication, assembling each component and delivery of a customized product, X.Y. Tower is present along the entire value chain.
Engineers help to reduce the project cost for our clients through optimized Tower designs and also ensure the accuracy of structure fitment so that site rectifications are eliminated.
intelligent manufacturing is widely applied in our plants. Inventory control is through ERP systems and entire manufacturing process is controlled by Industrial software. The fabrication is precisely known by engineers of company.
100% Raw Material Traceability from Billets to Finished Towers. We use 100% Tested Billets from state-owned Steel Plants only.
Strong Quality Assurance and Modern Testing Laboratories
Best in Package & Bunding process using Wire Weaving and Metal Strapping to ensure Faster Inventory reconciliation and zero shortage of material at sites
Additional Lashing & Choking Packing process for Export containers
At Skipper Limited, we offer our customers a full-range-cum-diverse product basket ranging from 66 KV to 800 KV Towers (Single Circuit, Double Circuit, Multi-Circuit Towers suitable for Twin, Triple, Quad or Hex Conductor configurations). We can offer Tower materials as per Indian as well as International material grades ranging from BSEN to ASTM to GOST.
Transmission tower is a tall structure, usually a steel lattice tower, use to support an overhead power line. We render these products with the help of
diligent workforce having vast experience in this field. We go through detailed line survey, route maps, spotting of towers, chart structure and technique document while providing these products.
Our product covers the 11kV to 500kV while include different tower type for example suspension tower, strain tower, angle tower, end tower etc.
Additionally, we still have a vast designed tower type and design service to be offered while if clients have no drawings.

All tower parts go through multi-purpose hydraulic machine that can carry out various operations such as shearing, punching and cutting. Hydraulic presses along with matching tools, jigs and fixtures ensure that bent items are handled without distortion. Strategically positioned cranes simplify material handling without any strain on employees. All machines are equipped to process steel conforming to various specifications e.g. ISO, ASTM, JIS, DIN.
X.Y. Tower has a very strict test protocol to ensure all products we fabricate is quality. The following process is applied in our production flow.
Sections and Plates
1. Chemical composition (Ladle Analysis)
2. Tensile Tests
3. Bend Tests
Nuts and Bolts
1. Proof Load test
2. Ultimate Tensile Strength test
3. Ultimate tensile strength test under eccentric load
4. Cold bend test
5. Hardness test
6. Galvanizing test
All the test data are recorded and will be reported to the management. If any flaws are found, the product will be repaired or scraped directly.
Quality of Hot-dip galvanizing is one of our strength, Our CEO Mr. Lee is an expert in this field with reputation in Western-China. Our team has vast experience in HDG process and especially good at handling the tower in high corrosion areas.
Galvanized standard: ISO:1461-2002.

Free prototype tower assembly service
prototype tower assembly is a very traditional but effective way to inspect whether the detail drawing is correct.
In some cases, clients still want to do prototype tower assembly to ensure the detail drawing and fabrication is OK. Hence, we still provide prototype tower assembly service for free to customers.
In prototype tower assembly service, X.Y. Tower makes commitment：
• For each member, the length, position of holes and interface with other members will be checked accurately for proper fitness;
• Quantity of each member and bolts will be carefully checked from the bill of materials when assembling the prototype;
• Drawings and bill of materials, sizes of bolts, fillers etc. will be revised if any mistake is found.
Customer visit service
We are so glad that our clients to visit our factory and inspect the product. It is a great chance for both sides to know each other better and strengthen cooperation.For our clients, we will receive you at Airport and provide 2-3 days accommodation.
Package and shipment
Every piece of our products is coded according to the detail drawing. Every code will be put a steel seal on each piece. According to the code, clients will clearly know a single piece belong to which type and segments.
All the pieces are properly numbered and packaged through the drawing which could guarantee no single piece missing and easily to be installed.
Normally, the product will ready in 20 working days after deposit. Then the product will take 5-7 working days to arrive at Shanghai Port.
For some countries or regions, like Central Asia, Myanmar, Vietnam etc., China-Europe freight train and carriage by land may be two better options of transportation.
