Protection for turbine foundations

Published:  18 February, 2015

winn__coales.jpgAtlantic Wind Services (MCR) Ltd of Manchester has recently completed the base foundation, infrastructure and other civil works for a new on-shore wind turbine at Darrington, Yorkshire.

The company says in order to increase anti-corrosion protection of the wind turbine’s base plinth they have applied Winn & Coales Densoband between the steel casing and the surrounding concrete foundation. In the image the black Densoband strip can be seen just above the concrete reinforcement cage.

Densoband is a polymer-modified bitumen strip for sealing joints and preventing the ingress of water. Providing a uniform flexible seal, it is said to be ideal for base and wearing course joints that can withstand thermal changes and movement from traffic load.
