In the South-East of Romania, the landscape has changed. Fântânele & Cogealac communities’ inhabitants have seen 240 wind turbines growing on a 1,100 hectares surface. This on-shore wind farm, the largest in Europe, produces 600 megawatts in total and supplies more than 400,000 households with clean energy!
Ultra series®, a blowing concrete!
Building such facility was not a straightforward matter: for one turbine only, the foundations require three layers of various concretes. The builders have relied on Lafarge! Our Ultra series® range took up the challenge by offering higher performance and fluidity than standard concretes. 140,000 m³ in total were supplied to cast the foundations of the wind turbines thanks to two mobile plants installed on site.
With the European objective to produce 20% of its electricity consumption from renewable energies by 2020, Romania has the means to become one of the best in class and contribute to the construction of more sustainable cities!
