Wind power structures offshore
The increasing use of offshore wind power generators around the world has shown a growing need for heavy weight to ballast the renewable energy turbines. LKAB Minerals supplies high density MagnaDense to offshore wind power projects, which, depending on the wind turbine foundation design can be used either as loose ballast or mixed into concrete. Our MagnaDense, manufactured from the mineral Magnetite, reaches densities up to 5.2 t/m3.
Wind turbine foundations stay put with heavy weight concrete
Wind turbine constructions require secure concrete foundations that are unaffected by undersea currents and lifetime abrasion. By nature, these offshore foundations need to have a considerable weight in order to withstand the motions of the sea and the stresses imposed by the windmills rotating blades.
This is where the MagnaDense aggregate, manufactured from natural iron ore, fits in your wind power project. Due to its high density and the favourable conditions under water, the product range of MagnaDense is a perfect fit for your wind power foundation offshore.
