The construction of the Ombepo Wind Farm was set up by InnoSun Energy Holding, a French-Namibian renewable energy company, in collaboration with the harbor city of Lüderitz, in southern Namibia. Construction of the N$180 million (US$13 million) project started in mid-2016; the initial phase included the completion of three 80 m (260-feet) tall turbines. Each turbine has three gigantic blades and single generators.
After extensive durability testing and a number of concrete mix designs, PENETRON ADMIX was specified to densify and waterproof the concrete foundations. The crystalline admixture will now effectively block any deterioration of the concrete matrix – through carbonation, sulphate attack, and ASR characteristic for the area – for the life of the structure.
