Offshore wind turbines are built to withstand high levels of vibration, which can lead to tensile stress of bolts and subsequent wear on joints. As well as vibration, the reliability of joints may be compromised by bolt relaxation, fatigue and corrosion. During the service life of the joint, depending on time, loading type and level, and environment, additional bolt wear and tear may result in joint separation and ultimately in complete joint failure.
CWind has a wealth of experience delivering successful bolting services during offshore wind turbine assembly, ensuring accurate tensioning and loading, providing reliability, value and consistency of offshore wind projects. CWind’s bolting solution can be provided as a full turnkey solution, and improves asset life.
Utilising geographically local, trained technicians, bolting teams, and experienced project managers, combined with a fleet of owned CTVs, CWind is able to effectively meet clients’ needs, and ensure asset integrity.
