3rd Technical Conference with Exhibition in The Windfair Newsletter

Subsoil Analysis, Ground Improvement and Wind Turbine Foundations, 22.11.2012 - 23.11.2012 in Essen.

Haus der TechnikHaus der Technik
The new multi-megawatt wind energy converters (WECs) make very high demands on subsoil bearing capacity and on wind turbine foundations. We can reasonably expect savings when foundation design and ground improvement processes are optimised to suit site-specific conditions.
• Subsoil analysis of wind turbine sites • Subsoil exploration at wind turbine sites – new cone penetration tests • Soil improvement options for various WEC foundation conditions
• The rationale for standards in the context of WEC foundations and subsoil
• Technical and commercial developments in stone-column subsoil improvement to increase the stability of wind turbines under high loads: design, construction, testing, examples
• Piled foundations for wind turbines
• The role of prefabricated piles in wind turbine foundations
• Reinforced geosynthetic layer design for building access tracks and crane hard standing areas in wind farms
• Foundation design and construction for wind turbines in Europe: real-world examples and experience
• Wind farm construction sites, quality assurance on site, experience reports on access track building and crane hard standing area preparation, foundation design and WEC erection: project preparation and site organisation

The objective of the technical conference is to convey a detailed overview of comprehensive soil investigation methods and appropriate subsoil improvement techniques, and how to choose the best foundation design for particular wind turbines. We will discuss geotechnical basics and present real-world case studies with a focus on the interaction between wind turbine design and type of foundation.

The conference is to enable participants to assess the geotechnical suitability of a site for the erection of a wind turbine and to design the required foundation.
Who should attend
Project developers and wind farm operators and staff, WEC manufacturers, experts, engineering consultants, investors
