AMBAU: Demanding contract concluded

Final part: the transition piece

The order to manufacture 41 transition pieces (TPs) for Bladt Industries A/S to be used in the EnBW Balitic 2 wind farm came to an end on 16 October 2014 as the TPs were loaded up for shipment. A total of 8,569 tonnes of steel had gone into the contract over the last few months.

At a footprint of 13.5 metres, these TPs were the largest component ever to have left the facilities at AMBAU Bremen – and they can’t come any bigger: nudging each one of these pieces out of the factorygates was a precision job in itself.

The connecting pieces between the jacket and tower will finally be put together into complete jacket constructions at Bladt Industries’ assembly hall in the Lindø Industrial Park.

The TPs will be used 32 kilometres north of the Isle of Rügen, where 80 wind turbines will be generating around 1.2 billion kilowatts of power annually after commissioning – enough to supply around 340,000 households with electricity.
