Turbine foundation in Shetland, Scotland

08 Sep 2021: Viking Energy facility: first wind turbine base. Eight ready-mix lorries carried the concrete to the turbine site from two batching plants set up nearby, each of which can mix 50 cubic metres an hour. The concreting operation involved two ready-mix lorries from Garriock Bros and high-grade aggregates from the company’s quarry at Vatster. Once the concrete has cured, the base is backfilled with materials excavated from the site, leaving only the centre ring showing, ready for the turbine tower to be bolted on. - SSE Renewables
