The construction and operation of wind farms pose particular engineering challenges that sometimes require unique solutions. We carry a number of products that have been developed for the wind power industry in response to challenges such as:
The following ultra high strength grouts have been developed specifically for use on wind turbine applications:
100 Newton Grout AW and 100 Newton Grout Standard
100 N Grout comes in an anti-washout grade as well as normal grade, for use in off-shore and even underwater situations. As its name suggests, it can achieve up to an impressive 100 N/mm² final compressive strength. It gives exceptional structural support and vibration resistance. It has shrinkage compensation in both plastic and hardened states and is a true non-shrink grout. The grout is highly flowable with the additional of minimal water.
100 Newton Grout is a cement-based grout with specially selected aggregates and admixtures and only requires the addition of water onsite for application.
This high performance precision grout has been design to be used on both pre-cast and steel wind towers to grout horizontal and vertical joints, anchoring of reinforced bars, and under base plate grouting. It provides high early strength and ultra high final compressive strengths. It has been fatigue tested and certified. It can be applied either manually poured or pumped for larger installations.
SikaGrout 3200 is a cement-based grout with specially selected aggregates and admixtures and only requires the addition of water onsite for application.
Designed specifically for onshore wind farm installations and where excellent fatigue resistance is required. This products boasts nanotechnology formulation. It too has high early strength gain and can achieve final compressive strengths of up to a massive 120 MPa. It is highly flowable and can easily be pumped or poured, even when the application site is complex or difficult to access using conventional methods.
Masterflow 9300 is a cement-based grout with metallic aggregate and only requires the addition of water onsite for application.
An ultra-high performance cementitous grout design for on-shore structural connections for wind turbine foundations and segmental concrete wind towers, as well as gas and oil installations. It can also be used for non-structural connections off-shore.
It does not contain fibres, giving it enhanced flow-charcteristics, enabling pumping or pouring over a wide range of applications.

For large projects where extreme constraints exist we can help with the process of modifying formulations to overcome specific problems, such as workability times, pumping distances, extreme application temperatures, etc.
