Variable Density Ballast
Variable Density ballast for ships, windfarms, marine turbines and floating towers.
Ultiballast - Variable density ballast – provides Naval Architects and Designers the opportunity to establish the optimum ballast solution during the planning, build process and on completion of stability and incline tests. Ultiballast is a variable density concrete 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. Variable high density marine concrete is also suitable for placement in floating or fixed wind tower bases as well as ships and windfarm bases, variable density ballast fixed ballast can be produced and installed in multiple visits to the vessel or structure to suit build program variable density fixed concrete ballast is extremely durable when placed within a vessel or structure it will last the lifetime of the asset.
Variable density fixed ballast concretes can be produced within and up to the following densities range. 1.5t/m3 - 5.0t/m3 these variable densities offer owners and operators the choice of utilising all available space to accommodate different densities if needed.
A non-magnetic variable -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.
