Bladt Industries establish jacket production at Lindø

Tuesday, 16 April, 2013 - 15:00

Bladt Industries are establishing a production site at Lindø Industrial Park (Denmark) based on another significant order for foundations for offshore wind. At Lindø, Bladt Industries will have more than 30,000 m2 of production halls at its disposal and will create dedicated production lines for serial production of jacket foundations for offshore wind turbines.

The new order comprises fabrication of 41 jacket foundations for offshore wind turbines for the offshore wind farm EnBW Baltic 2. Bladt’s customer is EPCI contractor Arge Baltic 2 Foundations (Hochtief Solutions, Geosea, Nordsee Naßbagger).

“We are already in the process of establishing dedicated jacket production facilities at Lindø Industrial Park. These facilities will enable us to serial produce jacket foundations at a rate of more than one foundation per week when the production lines are fully operational. By doing so, we will meet a challenging timeline for the EnBW Baltic 2 jacket project,” says Bladt Industries’ CEO Peter Rindebæk. The order for jacket foundations follows a series of other orders won by Bladt Industries in the past months for both offshore wind foundations and substations. The other orders won recently will be manufactured at Bladt Industries’ sites in Aalborg (Denmark) and Lubmin (Germany).

Recently, Bladt Industries was announced the leading supplier of offshore wind foundations in 2012 in an analysis by the European Wind Energy Association. The recent orders won will help the company to solidify this position and secure future growth. In order to prepare for further growth and to execute the recent orders, recruiting efforts are being initiated for a number of positions within production management, project management, tendering and QHSE both at the headquarters in Aalborg and at Lindø.
