FP McCann Uses Readymix Concrete To Build Wind Turbine Bases

The firm supplied over 6000m³ of readymix concrete to Altaveedan Wind Farm in Loughguile.

The concrete mix was used to build nine wind turbine bases, hardstandings and other concrete structures.

Each base required 500m³ of concrete, which had to be continuously supplied in one day due to planning conditions.

A low carbon GGBS mix was used to reduce mass concrete temperature and thermal cracking.
