Footing work at the $400 million White Rock wind farm in Glen Innes NSW is now taking serious shape, including the insertion of foundation bolts (pictured, with green caps) and more from Australian heavy fasteners suppliers AF Industrial (AFI).
The footing cages consist of over 51 tonnes of reinforcement, including AFI’s components, and is designed to securely hold up a tower that is tall enough to acommodate a rotor diameter of over 100m, including the Goldwind 2.5MW turbine mounted on the top. Add to this, engineering design that needs to be considered to resist high of amounts of windshear, and you have a very serious foundation indeed.
AFI is excited to see the project take shape. Foundation bolts in green.
