Pre-assembly

Successfully delivering the full scope of pre-assembly works for offshore wind farm sites

Pre-assembly of as many turbine components as possible, minimising risk associated with weather windows and logistics, is a well-adopted industry approach by wind farm developers and operators; a factor which is increasingly important when considering larger turbines requiring increased size of components, and transportation to wind farms being positioned further offshore.

Utilising a comprehensive pre-assembly approach can negate external weather influences and optimise vessel load. CWind has an established track record of successfully completing pre-assembly packages of work for offshore wind farm projects, and can provide these services as a full turnkey offering. CWind’s team of expert engineers effectively design bespoke solutions unique to individual wind farm sites, delivering efficiencies for customers.

CWind has experience of delivering pre-assembly work at over 760 turbines, across the UK and Europe. Utilising geographically local, trained technicians, combined with a fleet of fuel-efficient CTVs, CWind is able to meet clients’ needs efficiently and effectively.
