BASF Construction Chemicals announced its co-participation with Found Ocean at Renewable UK Offshore Wind 2013, the 12th annual event dedicated to offshore wind energy. The exhibition is scheduled on 12 and 13th June at Manchester Central. Andy Venn, Marketing Director for FoundOcean said,“FoundOcean’s vast offshore experience with BASF’s world leading chemical manufacturing capabilities means that foundation installers and wind farm developers can be confident in the quality of the grouted connection we’re providing.”
It is this strong partnership that helped secure several projects one of which being the Nordsee Ost OWF contract which started in June 2012. The 295 MW capacity wind farm will be installed in German waters on four-legged jacket foundations. The 49 foundations (48 turbine and one transformer substation) will be grouted to the seabed using BASF’s ultra high strength Exagrout Masterflow® 9500.
