Fortrac Heavy Load

Fortrac Heavy Load is a system for storage of extra-heavy units, e.g. monopiles for offshore wind turbines, pipelines or ship components. The system, consisting of Fortrac geogrids, special woven and filling material, provides a uniform seating with high resistance to settlement. Due to the large base and bearing area, additional support by wooden blocking or cribbing is unnecessary.

  • Load capacities of 800 t and higher

  • Robust, ductile, structurally type-tested system

  • Straightforward delivery in kit form for on-site assembly

  • Large base and bearing area

  • Loads efficiently transmitted to ground

  • High load capacity with minimal settlement (<1.5 % up to 800 t)

  • Low weight due to use of lightweight materials as filling materials

Key Benefits:

Solution for Heavy -Duty Support Pad 

Fortrac Heavy Load provides a flexible alternative to steel or concrete support systems. Due to the project related adaption of diameter and height, the system is suitable for different loads. The use of local soils or slags as filling material, offer the possibility of recycling as well as easy dismantling. Optionally, drainage units for hydraulic filling or a cover for protection against rain can also be added during construction.
