Wind Farms in Thailand - Geotechnical Calculations for the Final Design of the Shallow Foundations

In 2018 and 2019 three wind farms with each 30 wind turbines with a hub height of 156.5 m were erected in the Nakhon Ratchasima Province in Thailand, using the Hybrid Tower of Max Bögl. Each Hybrid Tower consists of precast concrete elements up to a level of about 75 m with a 78 m high steel tower on top of it. The almost 8,000 precast concrete elements were mainly produced in a mobile factory of Max Bögl in Thailand.
