Peikko’s rock-anchored foundations reduce the need for concrete by more than 90%. Traditional gravity foundations for wind turbines require approximately 600 m³ of in-situ concrete. Now, the necessary amount of concrete is less than 50m³, which is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly. This has been one of the crucial criteria in our project
