Peikko Norge has received substantial orders for rock foundation technology to be implemented at two wind parks in Norway.

First up, the Norwegian subsidiary of Peikko Group will deliver all steel components for all foundations at Marker Wind Park, located in the Ørje area of South-East Norway, and to Hitra 2 Wind Park in the Trøndelag area, Central Norway. The order comprises FATBAR Rock Anchors, tower adapter plates, drilling templates, and foundation reinforcement. Peikko will also supply the foundation design and structural calculations. The deliveries are scheduled to take place between April and August 2018. The wind park is estimated to be operational by the end of 2018.

“Our flexibility and full support throughout the project, combined with our professional solutions, have secured us several important wind park projects recently in the Nordic countries,” says Topi Paananen, CEO of Peikko Group. “Our aim is to be a reliable partner in every phase of the wind park project, from design calculations to installation on-site.”

The company has also announced that it will deliver all steel components for the 26 foundations of Hitra 2 Wind Park in the Trøndelag area, Central Norway.

The order comprises 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 to take place between April and August 2018. The wind park is estimated to be operational by the end of 2019.

Hitra 2 Wind Park is part of Fosen Vind, Europe’s largest land-based wind power project. Peikko has earlier participated in the project by delivering 71 rock foundations to Roan Wind Park and 80 foundations to Storheia Wind Park.
