Wind farms

Create a stabilised foundation for constructing wind turbines

The local soil in areas of wind farm construction is often weak and lacking bearing capacity for the heavy equipment needed for construction and maintenance. Use our geotextiles and geogrids to create a safe and economical construction site.

Enka-Tex and Enka-Force separate and reinforce the backfill at the intersection of the weak subsoils and horizontal Enkagrid layers reinforce the foundation platform.

Geotextiles and geogrids to improve soil stability

Geotextiles and geogrids to improve soil stability

  • Enkagrid, Enka-Tex and Enka-Force offer effective solutions.
  • Create a stabilised foundation covering weaker zones in the subgrade.
  • Avoid risks of overturning cranes and heavy lifting equipment.

Applying Enkagrid and Enka-Force

  • Using Enkagrid and Enka-Force leads to an immediate increase of bearing capacity.
  • It also reduces thickness of sub-base and foundation layer.
  • These improvements result in a reduction of differential settlements.
  • Enka-Force can also function as a stabilising mattress, bridging a grid of concrete piles.
