ULTIBALLAST Renewables offers a highly controlled, high-density ballast solution for construction of wind turbines, tidal generators and other on and offshore renewable energy applications.
It provides clear advantages to designers and site engineers including:
Available in a range of carefully controlled densities from 1.5 – 5.0 tonnes per cubic metre.
Allows precise placement of ballast with minimal access requirements, for improved flexibly and speed within production schedules.
By installing high densities reduces the standard traditional concrete volume in tower bases offering substantial cost and time savings for projects.
Available from on-site mobile batch plants for a continuous supply of large volumes of ballast, haulage, pumping and placement packages available.
Available as a non-stiffened, semi-stiffened, or fully stiffened product. The fully stiffened version is a permanent, stable part of the structure. Both the non-stiffened and lightly stiffened products can be removed, offering a versatile temporary ballast solution.
Non-corrosive with pH 12, protects steel surfaces from condensation and corrosion.
Material composition and performance not affected with emersion in salt water.
Non-flammable and non-toxic making it safer to install and does not support the growth of micro-organisms can also be recycled as granular material at end of asset life.
Stable and provides added impact resistance.
Proven record of use in a range of applications and environments.
A fit and forget ballast solution no maintenance needed.
Suitable for using in a precast process.
Produced and installed by our experienced team, throughout the UK and Europe to suit client requirements.
