Since the development of Holmatro's first TP levelling set for the construction of the Belgian offshore wind farm Belwind in 2009, the product range for offshore wind applications has significantly expanded. Besides hydraulic solutions to level wind turbine foundations (TP levelling), we have proven ourselves in the field of TP fixation, jacket fixation, cutting applications, seafastening systems and skidding solutions. Holmatro tools are also used for the lifting, weighing and levelling of offshore platforms and are integrated on pipe-laying vessels to support heavy lifting and moving applications.
On this page you will find a selection of our customer projects in offshore wind. Allow us to inspire you and challenge us to come up with a solution for your specific problem. Click on the following projects and read more.
In the beginning of 2017 PES WIND magazine published an inspiring article about our hydraulic solutions for offshore wind applications. You can read this article here (page 60-63 of the issue).
