Peikko Norge has secured a contract to supply rock foundation technology to Marker Wind Park, which is located in the Ørje area of Norway.

Under the deal, Peikko Norge will be delivering fatbar rock anchors, tower adapter plates, drilling templates, and foundation reinforcement, as well as steel components for all 15 foundations at the windfarm.

Peikko will also be responsible for creating the foundation design and will offer structural calculations.

“The necessary amount of concrete is less than 50m³, which is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly.”

Marker Wind Park project will be developed by Scanergy, which will collaborate with Swiss utility firm BKW Energie.

Scanergy construction manager Sebastian Prause said: “Peikko’s rock-anchored foundations reduce the need for concrete by more than 90%. Traditional gravity foundations for wind turbines require approximately 600m³ of in-situ concrete.

“Now, the necessary amount of concrete is less than 50m³, which is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly. This has been one of the crucial criteria in our project.”
