Wind Tower production and manufacturing industry

Wind Tower production

Control costs and increase weld and production standards.

Automated growing line systems designed and built to meet your project needs.

Monopile production and manufacturing industry

Monopile production

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.

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.
