Peikko is a world class company providing wind turbine foundation concepts. You as turbine distributor, investor or main constructor can utilize the foundation concept in your projects for all turbine types
What does this unique concept means in practice? For the customer it means only one partner to carry risks with the most requiring area: the Peikko design and anchoring components. Also risk management with needed documentation is included to concept.
A UNIQUE TURN KEY SOLUTION FOR WIND TURBINE TOWER FOUNDATIONS
Wind turbines and turbine towers are getting bigger and higher – and so are fatigue loads and risks of foundation defects. Fatigue load design is always demanding and grows even more complicated with extreme tower heights. Typically today the foundation is made of components from different suppliers, which increases the risk of delays in lead time. Sharing of responsibilities among many suppliers and contractors can create conflicts.
HOW DOES THE PEIKKO SOLUTION WORK?
Wouldn’t it be easier to have your foundation made of components that are fully integrated with each other, with the service also including the design? One supplier, for clear responsibilities. Peikko has made this possible!
Wind tower foundations are under high dynamic loads throughout their life cycle. To ensure the functionality of the foundation, the design and all the critical components have to meet strict requirements. Peikko’s post-tensioned FatBar bolt system is much safer than are the traditional embedded steel bolts, which still are often used in onshore steel tower foundations. The safety aspect of the post-tensioning system has increased the use of post-tensioning systems in general. The major wind turbine manufacturers are leading this development.
Peikko has optimized the wind turbine foundation as a total solution. The cost-effectiveness and reliability of Peikko’s foundation solution is a result of extensive R&D work alongside wind turbine manufacturers and engineering partners.
