High density concrete ballast weights
High density concrete ballast weights for ships, windfarms, marine turbines and floating towers.
High density concrete ballast weight is the extra weight added to floating vessels to provide stability. Adding the concrete ballast ensures the ship or marine vessel remains consistently buoyant in the water. Today, Ultiballast, specialist high density concrete ballast weights deliver proven performance.
An excellent form of ballast Ultiballast concrete weights prevents voids so as all available space is utilised within the ballast area or below the tank top. High density concrete ballast weights are suitable for placement in floating or fixed wind tower bases.
The density range of concrete ballast
High density concrete 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.
