BELZONA SAVES NEW WIND TURBINE
Industry: Power (POWR)
Application: GSS-Gaskets, Seals and Shims (GSS)
Customer Location: Windfarm, Croatia
Application Date: August 2011
Belzona 1211 (E Metal)
(Note Belzona 1212 would now be recommended for this application).
Problem: Flange section of one of the windmils was found to be distorted and needed to be rebuilt to ensure good fit to the other section.
1. Section that needed to be rebuilt 2. Former in place 3. Section rebuilt 4. Windmill installed
New windmill being installed on croatian coast.
The application was carried out in accordance with a modified Belzona Know-How System Leaflet GSS-7. A former was used to guide the rebuilding of the flange face.
The alternative to make a whole new section was too costly and time consuming. Failure to erect the windmill within schedule would have incurred huge costs. Belzona rebuild ensured a secure connection between sections could be achieved.
