Most of the world’s offshore wind flows away from the coast, beyond the reach of bottom-fixed turbines. Floating foundations are expected to grow to a footprint of 10,000m2 and weights between 4,000t and 16,000t, requiring considerable infrastructure to transport.
As turbines reach higher, innovations such as the SK6,000 will allow the assembly to continue next to the quay, where it is most efficient. When maintenance events occur, our gantry solutions allow for fast repair at the turbine site, avoiding downtime while a suitable crane vessel is found.
Our offshore services team has transferred some of the world’s largest structures between land and sea; constantly innovating to find a way into the water that is most efficient, safe and cost-effective.
