Ultra High Performance Cementitious (UHPC) Materials for Wind Turbines

installation of wind turbines

NauticAWT have developed and are manufacturing UHPC materials, including the NaX™ Q130 and NaX™ Q140 products, which are highly applicable for Wind Turbines.

NaX™ Q130 has been developed specifically for onshore wind turbines. It is a flowable, cohesive and impermeable grout, which can easily be pumped into structures with narrow constrictions and develops high compressive strength in a short period of time.

NaX™ Q140 has been developed specifically for offshore wind turbines and in addition to the characteristics of NaX™ Q130, this grout also exhibits anti-washout properties, which means it can be pumped underwater and is impermeable to water ingress hence highly suitable for offshore applications.

The features and benefits of NaX™ Q130 and NaX™ Q140 include:

  • Good flowability
  • High Early Strengths
  • Shrinkage compensated
  • Final setting time before 6 hours at 25°C
  • No segregation or bleeding

These UHPC grouts ensure a long term solution that is state-of-the-art within the industry. They can be applied within temperatures from 5°C to 35°C. This means that the grout materials are highly suitable for installations in not just temperate climates but also sub-tropical and tropical climates where other grouts prove inadequate. NaX™ products can and have been used for temperatures higher than 35°C but special precaution must be taken. Please contact NauticAWT for further instructions.
