A joint venture with offshore wind expertise
After more than 15 years of experience in the offshore energy industry, the EEW Group decided to expand their activities in this industrial sector. For this reason, in the year 2014, EEW SPC, the offshore wind specialist within the EEW Group, founded the joint venture Offshore Structures (Britain) Ltd. along with the Danish steel construction company Bladt Industries A/S. The production facility in north-eastern England, close to the River Tees, is the only manufacturer of large diameter pipes for offshore wind foundations, in particular for transition pieces for monopile foundations, in Great Britain.
OSB - a joint venture between two major players in the offshore wind industry
With the founding of Offshore Structures (Britain) Ltd., the extensive experience of two main players in the manufacturing of foundations for the offshore industry were united in order to even better fulfil our customers’ requirements. Since the beginning of production in 2008, EEW SPC has been the leading manufacturer of monopiles and transition pieces for offshore wind farms. The EEW daughter company has participated in more than 25 key offshore wind projects in Europe and North America. With more than 10 years of offshore wind experience, our joint venture partner, Bladt Industries, contributes to our business success.
A complete product portfolio
With the inclusion of Offshore Structures (Britain) in the network of the EEW Group, EEW is able to offer complete foundations for offshore wind turbines. In addition to monopiles and jacket components, transition pieces are among the key products in our portfolio. By doing so, we can supply our customers in the offshore wind industry from a single source. In addition, the location in England makes it possible for us to fulfil CFD requirements for British offshore wind projects.
The location in the centre of the offshore wind industry
The OSB production location close to the River Tees in north-eastern England is the ideal location for the manufacturing of transition pieces for offshore wind foundations. The production facilities, covering 13,000 m², as well as systems for sandblasting and coating on an additional 2,000 m², guarantee the efficient fabrication of our products. The direct access to the sea makes smooth transport possible.
