Challenges & Solutions

The construction and maintenance of wind power towers demands special attention to the durability of these structures, as they often are located near the sea and are exposed to wind, weather and salt. MC offers sustainable solutions for all construction stages as well as the maintenance of wind power structures which enhance their long-term durability.

OPTIMIZE CONCRETE PRODUCTION FOR FOUNDATION

Large volumes of concrete, high heat of hydration, unfavorable weather conditions ...

These are some of the challenges encountered during the execution of foundations. MC provides you with a wide range of admixtures, such as Muraplast line of multifuncional plasticizers and superplasticizers, Centrament Retard retardants and Murasit hydration inhibitor. To overcome difficulties with curing MC also offers with the Emcoril product line a wide range of effective curing agents.

OPTIMIZE CONCRETE PRODUCTION FOR PRECAST ELEMENTS

Increasing productivity and performance in the production of precast elements

Every new project new challenges have to be tackled, as different types of aggregates and binders, different weather conditions, specific needs of resistances.

All of these variables need to be considered at the time to develop the appropriate concrete mix. Here, MC offers you a wide range of concrete admixtures to optimize the manufacturing process of precast elements, such as MC-PowerFlow PCE plasticizerers and Muraplast superplasticizer lines. By this, you will be able to increase your productivity and performance your production.

PROTECTING THE STRUCTURE & INCREASING DURABILITY

Resisting wind, C02 and chlorides

Wind power structures are exposed to salt, abrasion, vibration and movement, which can damage the structure. With the MC's high-performance coatings from the MC-Color product range, you can permanently protect the concrete of your wind power structure against these attacks. They are water vapor permeable, flexible, highly resistant and they cure quickly. Combined with our technical advice and support, we provide you with the best technical solution to sustainably protect your building and increase its durability.

CONSOLIDATING THE ELEMENTS

For an easy assembly and consolidation of concrete parts

One critical step to the success of a construction of a wind power structure is the safe assembling and consolidation of the vertical joints between the concrete parts by using grouts and adhesives of MC like Emcekrete 80 and MC-DUR 1300 Plus. This provides you with the best technical properties for these kind of applications and even helps yout to reduce the operation time for cranes.

STRUCTURAL REPAIR of THE STRUCTURE

Solving structural problems and repairing damages of the concrete

If the concrete of your wind power structure is damaged and has to be repaired, MC offers with the Nafufill series a wide range of concrete replacement systems for very different tasks. With Nafufill LM, Nafufill KM 220, Nafufill KM 230 and Nafufill KM 250 MC provides four repair and concrete replacement mortars that fulfill the requirements of EN 1504 Part and give planners the necessary security for their repair taks. This will help you to take your concrete repair to the next level.

INJECTION OF CRACKS AND VOIDS

Sealing cracks and cavities and preventing consequential damage

There are many reasons for cracks and cavities in the concrete of wind power structures. With the MC-inject product family MC offers you globally unique, high-performance injection systems that can safely and permanently close and seal cracks and cavities and prevent consequential damage.
