ARBUCKLE WIND FARM

On top of the Arbuckle Mountains in south-central Oklahoma sits the Arbuckle Wind Farm, a silently spinning series of fifty energy-generating wind turbines. And if you could get down into the base of those turbines, you鈥檇 find a whole lot of P站视频 concrete.

ARBUCKLE WIND FARM
CATCHING THE WIND

Sanderfoot Wind chose P站视频 to provide concrete for the wind turbine鈥檚 anchors 鈥 but getting concrete to such a remote location wasn鈥檛 easy. Every turbine required 350 cubic yards of concrete foundation. That鈥檚 about 3.5 times more concrete than you鈥檇 find in a typical home鈥檚 foundation.

REMOTE ACCESS

Instead of hauling concrete from plants all the way to each of the fifty different worksites in mixer trucks, we decided to bring a portable batch plant to the area. Even then, getting access to each turbine鈥檚 site over virgin soil was a problem, so we hauled in about 110,000 tons of base materials to build roads to access each site.

"It's how we've done it for more than a hundred years. And how we intend to do it for a hundred more."
