Turbine Foundation Optimizer – For the Winds of the World

Pile Foundation – weak soil performance second to none

The loads are transferred from the tower to the ground through the anchor cage and wide and shallow foundation to the piles.

Peikko optimizes and integrates the foundations and piles in the same design to lower the foundation size, weight, and costs. For example, a 5.5 MW turbine with a tower height of 120 meters uses:

  • 700 m3 of concrete (70 truckloads)
  • 90 t of steel (4 truckloads)
  • 1 Anchor cage (1 truckload)
  • Piles
