ITW Celebrates 25 Years of Its Offshore Grouting Product
This year, ITW celebrates the 25th anniversary of Ducorit® – an Ultra High Performance Cementitious (UHPC) based material for grouting, which is used in renewable energy projects and oil and gas industry.
In offshore renewables sector, the product has been applied as a grouted connection between piles and transition pieces in all foundation types for wind turbines, met masts, substations, and wave/tidal energy solutions.
The product Ducorit® was introduced in 1990 and it has been used in over 2,000 monopile connections, taking a market share of more than 70 % of all grouting offshore wind turbine connections in Europe.
Peter Gorlitz, Business Development Manager in ITW WindGroup, said: “The offshore wind industry is still relatively new, and so it is important to stay alert and be very flexible because the learning curve is still at an early stage. That’s why we continue to develop new products and solutions for tomorrow’s demands, says Soren Bunch, Installation and Equipment Manager at ITW Engineered Polymers.”
The 25th anniversary will be celebrated at the EWEA Offshore Exhibition in Copenhagen from 10-12 March, where ITW WindGroup will exhibit at booth D56 in Hall E.
