June 21 (Renewables Now) - Finland’s Peikko Group will deliver its rock foundation technology to the 60-MW Froya wind park in the Trondelag county in Central Norway.

The company said this week its Norwegian office, Peikko Norge AS, received an order to deliver all steel components for the 14 foundations of the wind farm. The order includes FATBAR Rock Anchors, tower adapter plates with tower connection bolts, drilling templates and an assembling system, as well as reinforcement steel technology. Peikko will also be in charge of the foundation design and structural calculations.

The Finnish company is expected to make deliveries between August and October of 2019.

The Froya wind park will feature 14 units of V136-4.2 MW turbines supplied by Vestas Wind Systems A/S (CPH:VWS).

The developer behind the project is TronderEnergi Vind. The firm is a joint venture (JV) between Norwegian power company Tronder Energi and Stadtwerke Muenchen GmbH (SWM), the public services provider in the region of Munich, Germany.

The Froya wind park is expected to come online by the end of 2020.
