Wind Energy – Secondary Steel
Ørsted has awarded Smulders the contract for the manufacturing of secondary steel for the TP-less foundations for the Gode Wind 3 and Borkum Riffgrund 3 Offshore Wind Farms.
Both wind farms are located off the German coast.
Smulders will fabricate and supply the secondary steel elements for the 23 TP-less foundations and 1 Offshore Substation foundation for Gode Wind 3, the 83 TP-less foundations for Borkum Riffgrund 3 and will supply the boat landings, external ladders, suspended internal cages (SIP-units) and the anode cages.
Smulders will supply the secondary steel elements from Poland. The external ladders will be manufactured and painted at our facility in Niemodlin. The components for the SIP units are also produced at our facility in Niemodlin, then galvanised and transported to the coast (Stettin) where they will be assembled into a cage.
Afterwards, the electrical package will be mounted on the units. The anode cages will be manufactured in Belgium or in Poland.
Production will start in May 2022 and will take until first quarter 2023.
