FoundOcean Wraps Up Gemini Foundations Grouting
FoundOcean has completed the grouting of foundations at Gemini Wind Farm on behalf of Van Oord.
The offshore wind farm, situated 85 kilometres north of the Dutch province of Groningen, is made up of 150 wind turbines spanning across 2 sites. The 600 MW wind farm will provide 785,000 homes with renewable energy from 2017 onwards.
The Gemini wind farm project was the first to utilise a new grouting material, MasterFlow 9800.
Jim Bell, the Managing Director of FoundOcean, said:
“FoundOcean recognized a need amongst its customers for a material that could provide high early strength development and low temperature performance, yet also offered increased efficiency, safety and cleanliness.”
