The use of concrete as base material in wind turbine towers is increasing every year. This concrete has special requirements in order to resist the great loads that the nacelle transfer to the tower and this one down to the foundation. In Sika we can provide a complete solution from foundation, erection to protection of all the concrete parts of a wind farm.

Concrete Towers - Solid and High Quality Solution

Concrete is widely used in construction due to its properties of strength, durability and versatility. And this is transfer to the wind business. Therefore, the products used to bond or link the precast concrete elements must share the same properties. For this use, Sika has developed the special range of cementitious grout SikaGrout® and Sikadur® that fill the joints and transfer the loads, or even protect the reinforcement steel and bolts against corrosion

Sika is the unique supplier that can provide the needed grouts, protective systems, elastic sealants, structural adhesives or even chemical anchoring products for your project, avoiding quality or incompatibility problems.

With the complete solution, Sika is the perfect partner for the concrete tower wind business.
