CTE Wind swoops on WTG foundation design projects in Andean region .

Bilbao (ESP) /La Richardais (FRA) – CTE Wind Ibérica, the Spanish Branch of CTE Wind International, has secured several contracts to deliver foundation design and geotechnical services for multiple wind farms in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. In Ecuador, the expert in foundation design for wind turbine generators (WTG), has already finished its project for a wind farm with nearly 25 turbines. In Colombia CTE Wind is working on foundation design for a couple of  wind parks and in Peru a new final design project will start in the very next days.

Enrique MARTINEZ, Commercial Manager of CTE Wind Ibérica said: «We are thrilled to work in those projects in the Andean region, which due to tectonic movements is a complex and challenging environment. This shows the trust that our customers have in our capabilities.»

Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions

Since earlier this year the structural engineering company has also been working on various projects in Chile, with globally 100 WTGs counting. Thanks to this achievement CTE Wind Ibérica worked in almost all Andean states. And this, in a region where tectonic forces can result in minor to major earthquakes and volcanic eruptions! But thanks to CTE Wind’s internal Geotech engineers these normal geological activities are no problem, as they were considered during the final design calculations.

CTE Wind Civil Engineering is an international engineering consulting firm specialized in the analysis and design of on- and nearshore wind turbine foundations. CTE Wind is active in the wind energy sector since 2003 with offices in France (HQ), Brazil, Poland, Portugal, Spain and in Vietnam. CTE Wind has calculated and designed foundations over 16’500 turbines in 70 countries.
