A sustainable solution for renewables

Offshore wind farm
At ‘All Energy 2013’, LKAB Minerals shared its knowledge on using MagnaDense high density aggregate for offshore wind turbines.

Presenting our mineral solution for renewable energy at the largest UK exhibition ‘All Energy 2013’.

Our experienced European technical and sales team were on hand to introduce our high density aggregate MagnaDenseTM  to wind, wave and oil professionals working on renewable projects requiring ballasting material.

This face to face forum enabled us to present our recent involvement in the Karehman wind farm project where the inert and environmentally friendly iron ore MagnaDenseTM  was used as loose ballast in 16 wind turbines.

It was with pride we heard Minelco being mentioned in the McLaughlin & Harvey presentation with regards to our working partnership on the Deep Green project in Northern Ireland. MagnaDenseTM was mixed with normal concrete which formed the ballast of the gravity foundation structure tethering the wave tidal machines to the seabed.

For another year running the exhibition proved successful for networking with members within the renewables industry and proving Minelco’s continuous support to the future of renewables.
