Wind Turbine Foundation Solutions

Wind power has come a long way from the classic windmills of the past. Today’s wind turbines generate vastly more energy – but are far more expensive to build and maintain. Learn how the next generation of wind turbine foundation solutions helps owners manage design and construction costs, reduce repairs, and extend the life of the structure. Then, check out our recent Patrick & Henderson (P&H) webinar series below to find out more about these innovative wind turbine foundation systems.

Wind Foundation Contacts at Terracon

THE P&H WEBINAR SERIES – SITE SELECTION (Day 1)

Site Selection is crucial, and Terracon is revolutionizing the process with Stage1. Learn how you can access decades of preliminary geotechnical and environmental data from your desktop.

Michael Frawley, P.E., and Jessica Turner tell you all the advantages of Terracon’s updated Stage1 offering. Terracon wind program manager Mark Underhill, R.G., L.H.G., outlines site compatibility for P&H wind foundations.

THE P&H WEBINAR SERIES — FOUNDATION DESIGN (Day 2)

Learn more about the design of P&H wind foundation systems, and why they’re a better choice than spread foot foundations.

Yazen Khasawneh, Ph.D., P.E., reviews the features and advantages of the Patrick & Henderson (P&H) tensionless pier foundation. Rabi Yadava, Ph.D., P.E., P.M.P., talks about the versatility of P&H soil- and rock-anchor foundations.

THE P&H WEBINAR SERIES — CONSTRUCTION (Day 3)

 

Construction of P&H wind foundations uses less concrete, steel, requires less earthwork, and can be completed in as little as five days. Find out how it’s possible, and learn more about Terracon’s proprietary TARGETID technology.

Blair Loftis, national director of Terracon’s power generation and transmission services, focuses on the critical aspects of construction. Justin Reynolds, P.E., and Jamie Gaynor, P.G., review the distinct advantages of Terracon’s TARGETID testing and inspection data management and visualization capabilities.

THE P&H WEBINAR SERIES — POST-CONSTRUCTION (Day 4)

 

Find out how our post-construction monitoring services can help ensure the continued performance of P&H wind foundation systems, and how the P&H foundation systems are ideally suited for repowering efforts.

Yazen Khasawneh, Ph.D., P.E., and Mo Nasim, Ph.D., P.E., share their findings on up-tower data rotational stiffness analysis. Mike Brethel, P.E.,  focuses on repowering.
