Wind Farm Foundations, Ballybane, Cork, Ireland

Our concrete repair specialists used a variety of expert techniques to repair the foundations of this onshore wind farm

Balvac's specialist services were used to keep the turbines stable, minimising safety risks and ensuring they produced the required amount of energy.

The turbines are held in place by a steel ‘can’ embedded into a concrete foundation. We were contracted to repair and reinforce this concrete, helping to keep the turbines secure and ensuring they continue to produce energy. The work was carried out over a three-week period and ensured the smooth operation of the turbines.

We removed damaged concrete from the ‘can’, using precise drilling to access the base of the foundation. We strengthened the remaining concrete by injecting a specialist epoxy resin. The structures were then reinforced and protected from future damage using corrosion inhibitors and specialist sealants.
