Peikko Finland Oy
Voimakatu 3, 15101 Lahti
Peikko is the leading foundation technology supplier in the Nordic countries. Choosing a Peikko solution helps to secure the profitability of wind power project. Even though it may seem like a minor detail in a wind power development project with a EUR 50–200 million price tag, slow progress in foundation design, production and assembly will postpone the day when the investment starts to generate profit. With that in mind, Peikko has created a holistic solution consisting of design, manufacturing and installation of both gravity and rock foundations.One of the main hurdles in developing large wind parks is timetable. Typically, it will take 4 to 8 weeks to get a foundation design from an engineering company or a structural designer. And if there are different soil types in the area chosen for your wind park, more weeks are lost doing additional designs. Peikko has changed the game. We can come up with a preliminary design even in one day. This is the fastest way to assess the cost of a foundation. Our industrial approach means that the wind turbine foundation design is seamlessly integrated with production. We can have the components – anchor cage and reinforcement – ready for shipping starting from 3 weeks. Global warehousing of standard components further adds flexibility of delivery. Visit Peikko’s website to see recent onshore wind turbine foundation references.
