Resin fix were asked to carry out repairs to wind turbine base that had recently been constructed due to some initial casting problems. These problems resulted in cracking in the base below the turbine. These cracks were superficial, and in the nonstructural part of the support to the wind turbine. However, the client needed to maintain the base for longevity and called us in to inject the cracks with epoxy resin. The support grout under the base was also replaced with a new high strength grout and the whole base waterproofed with a flexible cementitious special repair mortar of 4 mm thickness. All the materials are designed for quick and high strength. This would enable the Windmill to be reactivated much quicker and continue producing electricity it was designed to. It is unusual for this to happen, and no doubt maintenance of wind turbine bases will occur as with all mechanical structures maintenance is essential.
