Wind Turbine Foundations
ECP Utility has been involved with the Wind Power industry for several years and with the development of our helical foundation system we have seen the wind power generation industry grow. There is no concrete, no digging of holes, no rebar and no soils to haul off. The ECP helical pile foundations are turned into the ground and once the correct depth and installation torque is achieved you are ready to install the monopole mounting plate.
As the renewable energy field has grown the use of helical anchors has grown also. With remote locations and less than ideal site conditions contractors have learned the benefits of ECP Utility helical anchors. ECP helical anchors are a proven success in allowing contractors to save time and money without disturbing the surrounding terrain and ecosystem.
Advantages of Helical Foundations
- Quick Installation
- No Spoils
- All Weather Installation
- No Waiting on Concrete
- Immediate Loading
- Made in the USA
Helical Ground Anchors can also be used on guy towers in the wind turbine industry. ECP Utility helical anchors have been used for guy anchors in the electric utility industry for over 50 years and this same technology is being adapted to the wind power industry today. Helical guy anchors can be installed in most soils and can be designed to resist very high loads. With a variety of connections and adapters ECP Utility can match the correct products to your application or situation.
Renewable Energy and Recycling
Steel is the most recycled material on Earth. Each year more than 60 million tons of steel is recycled. Combining renewable energy generation with steel foundations is a natural act as we look to protect and preserve our planet. When it comes to being ecologically responsible, demand that your foundation products are made with steel and produced by ECP Utility – a company that cares.
