Peikko Group’s Norwegian subsidiary Peikko Norge AS has received an order to deliver rock foundation technology to Tindafjellet wind farm in Rogaland area in Southern Norway.
Peikko delivers all steel components to the three foundations of the wind farm. The deliveries comprise FATBAR Rock Anchors, tower adapter plates, drilling templates and foundation reinforcement. Peikko is also responsible for the foundation design and structural calculations. Deliveries are scheduled for September 2017. The wind park is estimated to be operational in February 2018.
The project is developed by ASKO Fornybar AS. The main contractor Risa AS is responsible for the civil work of the project, and its subcontractor Espeland AS will perform the construction work of the rock anchor foundations. SWECO Norge AS has performed and granted the third-party verification of Peikko’s foundation design. Vestas will deliver 3 pieces of V117-3.3MW turbines with hub heights of 92 meters to Tindafjellet.
“Peikko’s in-house component production and dedicated foundation design team were essential in this project with a short construction time. The fast and smooth delivery route from Finland to Norway also ensures a timely delivery to the site,” notes Johannes Lundal, project developer at Risa AS.
“Peikko’s rock foundation solution is always tailored to customer and project needs. We were able to meet the customer’s tight schedules and high quality requirements and thus secure us the project”, states Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group Corporation.
