MagnaDense balances floating wind turbines
For both gravity base wind structures or floating wind platforms MagnaDense either as ballast or filled concrete are utilised when more density is required than would be achievable from conventional aggregates and concrete. Our unique product for ballasting the foundations of these wind turbine units offers stability and long underwater lifetime.
LKAB Minerals has supplied MagnaDense to the first commercial floating wind farm, Hywind, offshore the Scottish coast which was finished end 2017. We have a detailed Case Study available upon request.
Logistics and availability for world-wide wind projects
Wherever your offshore wind project will be based, LKAB Minerals will help you to find the best logistic solution for the MagnaDense supply. Mined from group-owned resources in Kiruna or Malmberget in Northern Sweden, the iron oxide aggregate is taken to the harbour of Luleå (Sweden) or Narvik (Norway). Here it is stored in silos or transported to strategic stock locations. We also supply offshore projects directly to the customers’ required location on sea.
Contact our Sales Managers for a quotation, specification or a sample. You find the contact details and a contact field at the bottom of this page. You can also watch below video which explains the origin of our high density natural mineral in detail, the logistic routes and the services we can provide to your offshore wind project.
