Roads and Crane Pads
Access resp. network roads in a wind farm to the turbine locations and its crane pads designs bear the highest savings potential in a wind farm planning. The type of ground conditions will determine how intensive or costly the pad construction is going to be. Pads as well as the roads are rated by their carrying capacity which is the amount of load they can withstand. These are usually unpaved however compacted with layers of gravel. Crane Pads are usually located adjacent to the turbine foundations to facilitate turbine components lifting during turbine erection and future maintenance or repairs. Roads are designed for the lifetime of the wind farm.
The general requirement for the roads is a load bearing capacity which is sufficient to withstand the heaviest of the windfarm components to be trafficked through. All roads have to be constructed prior to the foundation works and the erection of the turbines.
