Transport of ring shots and Monopiles for Taiwan

Steelwind Nordenham GmbH has been commissioned to produce 80 monopiles (MPs) for the Yunlin Offshore Wind project in Taiwan. Each of the MPs weigh between 100 t and 1,500 t, there is an outlier with 1,780 t.
40 MPs are produced in one piece, 40 MPs only in 2 or 3 sections in order to assemble them in Taiwan (promotion of local content.)
Just-in-time transports of sheet shots and monopiles within the Steelwind factory premises ensure smooth production.
By means of a 12-axle SPMT the steel plates loaded by our partner Rhenus Midgard Nordenham are brought to the bending machines. The bent shell sections are loaded on cassettes and temporarily stored at defined locations on the site.
