Streamline your manufacturing process.
Helping manufacturers in the wind energy industry increase their weld production and quality, since 2002. We design, manufacture and deliver hard automation solutions for onshore / offshore wind tower and monopile production. Our offices and facilities are located in the United Kingdom, Denmark and North America.
Weld automation solutions for the wind energy sector
Everything you need, direct from the manufacturer – From start to finish, we are with you every ‘section’ of the way.
“With our expertise, knowledge and capabilities – we deliver innovative solutions to benefit our customers needs. As a global leader, and the UK’s only major manufacturer of hard automation systems for the wind energy industry, we offer customers around the world the full range of solutions and services available.”
Jesper Hansen, Global Technical Sales Manager (Renewables) of Key Plant Automation.
Rotators / Turning rolls
Dedicated specialists in optimizing your wind tower and monopile production.
Wind Tower production
Control costs and increase weld and production standards.
Automated growing line systems designed and built to meet your project needs.
For the extra heavy, thick wall steel tube foundations of wind towers.
Monopiles are a drop in the ocean.. we deliver automated systems capable of handling vessels weighing over 2000 tonne.
Tank, pipe, and other rolled and welded industries.
The ACJS optimises the joining, welding and assembly of tubular thin wall cans, such as storage tanks and rocket fuel cells.
Traversing extra heavy duty 7m x 6m tandem circumferential seam column & boom welding system.
We designed and manufactured the worlds first telescopic column & boom with a tandem welding system.
The advantage of using a telescopic type column and boom is to save space at the opposite side of the column.When the telescopic boom retracts it fits inside the main boom arm, therefore it is not required to have the same amount of area behind the column as in front of the column.
This 5.4m x 9.5m telescopic system incorporated 2 power sources, 2 submerged arc welding heads, motorised slides, tracking systems, camera monitors and a flux recovery system. The weight of the welding head at the end of the boom is 620kg at a distance of 10,500mm from the centre of the column. There is minimal welding head vibration or movement with the boom arm fully extended.
Column and booms
Automated welding processes for inner, outer, circumferential and longitudinal welding applications.
Rotators / turning rolls
Maximise safety, minimise handling, boost productivity & enhance consistency & welding quality.
Fit-up / Growing Lines
Reduce time & cost, increase productivity & gives a consistence to the fitting up and joining of cans.
We have full control of production from plate delivery, through to site installation and commissioning. Giving Key Plant the facility, along with our standard equipment, to design and manufacture highly sophisticated hard automation solutions – all in house, under one roof.
Proud to play our part in green energy projects around the world.
Since 2002, our forward-thinking innovative solutions for wind tower and monopile production have helped manufacturers in the wind industry streamline their production goals.
Beyond the finish line.
