Steelwind ships out giant monopiles

NORDENHAM. Giant steel structures have been leaving the Steelwind plant in Nordenham-Blexen since March. The foundation structures for offshore wind farms are up to 110 metres in length, have a diameter of max. 9.6 metres and weigh up to 2,100 tonnes. They are intended for a wind farm in the Baltic Sea and will be installed there in the summer. The wind farm will commence operation as from 2023 and generate 257 mega-watts of electricity to supply around 290,000 households. The terminal operator Saar-Rhein-Transportgesellschaft assists Steelwind in loading the monopiles.
