Grouting solutions

Master Builders Solutions’ grouting solutions play an important role in the successful construction of modern offshore windfarms. Their MasterFlow wind turbine grouts contribute to durable foundations and cost saving installations, for on and offshore wind. MasterFlow wind turbine grouts are the market leaders in applications where ultra-high strength, high modulus and fatigue resistance are required.

Offshore wind turbine installations are enormous, heavy structures. They require extensive subsea grouting to form robust, structural connections throughout the foundations from subsoil to splash zone. These vital links in the construction are subjected to huge dynamic forces. Master Builders Solutions has therefore developed a range of offshore grouts, specially adapted to each foundation type, that can absorb these immense loads.

Latest innovation

Their latest innovation, MasterFlow 9650, is a shrinkage compensated grout. When mixed with water, it produces a homogeneous, flowable and pumpable grout with exceptional rheological properties. Early strength development even at cold temperatures, final high strength and other superior technical performance are given.

MasterFlow 9650 is the first ever blended grout that comes with a Type Approval Certificate according DNVGL-ST-C502 for load carrying rock socket grouted connections. Furthermore, the material is suited for cylindrical grouted connections like monopiles using bolted connections.
