Peikko to deliver foundation technology to Markbygden wind project

Peikko Sverige has secured a substantial order to deliver its gravity foundation technology to the 650MW Markbygden Wind Park.

Peikko Sverige has secured a substantial order to deliver its gravity foundation technology to the 650MW Markbygden Wind Park.

Located in the Piteå area of Northern Sweden, the project is being developed in three phases and features a total of 179 turbines. Once completed, it is expected to be the largest single onshore wind park in Europe.

Under the deal, Peikko will be responsible for supplying the reinforcement package, which includes rebar coupling systems, as well as punching and shear reinforcement for the 16 foundations of Phase I.

“The cost-efficiency of Peikko’s gravity foundations results from effective use of materials with reduced site assembly and construction time.”

In addition, the company will have to design and carry out structural calculations for the wind park’s foundations.

Peikko Group CEO Topi Paananen said: “Currently, Peikko is the leading onshore foundation technology supplier in the Nordic countries, and we are very proud to enhance our position in Sweden by participating in the Markbygden Wind Park project.
