Tuesday, July 15th, 2014
Contractor NRS Group from County RoscommonIreland, there were 3 turbine bases each pour was 160m3.
The site is 1 hour drive from Viewfield plant, concrete specification include the use of GGBFS @ 70% replacement. The slump on site was required to be 150mm to achieve this we also used a retarder to compensate for the travelling time. Also with the warm weather the contractor was expecting to have the base completed within 4 hours.
We agreed to start on site at 5.30am; with 14 trucks used we had 144m3 batched before the first truck return to plant, each pour of 160m3 were completed within the 4 hour period.
