Sika puts the seal on Fife wind turbine

For its ultra-high compressive strength, SikaGrout3200 was specified for the construction of an 75metre-high wind turbine at Lower Melville Wood landfill site in Fife which it is estimated will create enough energy to power nearly 200 homes.

Developed specifically for use in the onshore wind farm generation, SikaGrout3200 was ideal for the project which is designed to generate 600MWh per year and reduce 290 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Among the product’s features are its excellent fatigue and dynamic resistance, high early strength build-up, pumpable fluid consistencies and resistance to freeze-thaw cycles. SikaGrout3200 was specified for the project. A total of 600kg of product was applied on top of a cured concrete base, filling the void between the turbine’s steel flange and the concrete to provide a solid structural bedding and support the weight of the tower.

Scott Warren, technical director of the project’s main contractor, commented: “When selecting a grouting product we place priorities on quality, conformity, specification, characteristics, yield and cost. Sika are a company renowned for its concrete product solutions, so naturally we knew it was perfect for our needs".
