Peikko lays foundation for Norwegian wind park
Peikko Norge, the Norwegian subsidiary of the Peikko Group, will supply the Roan Wind Park in Central Norway with rock foundation technology, material as well as design the foundation structure.
Peikko is scheduled to deliver all steel components for the 71 foundations of the wind park, including rock anchors, tower adapter plates, drilling templates and foundation reinforcement, between April 2017 and spring 2018. The project is estimated to be operational by the end of 2018.
The Roan Wind Park project will be carried out by Statkraft on behalf of the future owner of the wind park, Fosen Vind DA, a joint venture of TrønderEnergi, Statkraft and Nordic Wind Power DA.
“In such a major wind park project with tight schedules we at Peikko are able to offer added value to the customer with our Rock Foundation Solution,” says Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group. “Having one supplier taking care of the design and manufacture of the foundation components clearly simplifies the project.”
