Fixed ballast solutions
Fixed ballast for ships, windfarms, marine turbines and floating towers.
Fixed ballast – Ultiballast is high density concrete that is suitable for ballasting ships and marine structures. It is an excellent form of ballast as by its nature of composition it prevents voids so as all available space is utilised within the ballast area or below the tank top. High density marine concrete is suitable for placement in floating or fixed wind tower bases as well as ships and windfarms.
High density fixed concrete ballast is extremely durable when placed within a vessel or structure it will last the lifetime of the asset.
The density range of fixed ballast solutions
High density fixed ballast concretes can be produced within and up to the following densities range. 1.5t/m3 - 5.0t/m3 these high densities offer owners and operators a high density to space taken option. A non-magnetic high-density ballast of 3.6t/m3 can also be produced for use in vessels involved in counter-mine operations.
Our high-density ballast has a proven record of use in a range of marine and offshore applications.
Ultiballast complies with MARPOL and IBC code for use in chemical tanker vessels and is produced and installed by our experienced team, throughout the UK and Europe to suit client requirements and locations.
