ITW has completed grouting at London Array

Wednesday, 5 December, 2012 - 15:00

ITW Densit, a pioneer in producing ultra high performance cementitious materials for the offshore industry, finalized its part in the London Array project. For almost two years, ITW has been working on both offshore and onshore grouting within the project. During this project, the company has installed the grouted connections between monopiles and transition pieces of 175 wind turbines and the two offshore substation foundations.

The onshore part has been performed at the premises of Bladt Industries in Aalborg, Denmark, where the concrete working platforms were connected to the transition pieces by means of grouting with the use of ITW’s Ducorit materials. Parallel to this onshore operation, the offshore part was executed in the outer Thames Estuary where the wind farm is located.

ITW Densit is a global leader in supplying grouting solutions within the wind energy industry. For almost 30 years ITW Densit has supplied strong cementitious solutions to a variety of industries, including Renewable Energy, Oil & Gas and Wear & Abrasion.
