Wind Farm Installation

Wind Farm Installation

 
For obvious reasons, offshore wind farms are built in waters known for their constant, steady and strong winds. The stiff wind provides energy but is a great challenge during wind farm construction. Maneuvering of the pontoon-shaped installation vessels must be precise and safe. And their ability to remain in position out at sea without the need to lay anchor is a prerequisite for work to be carried out safely.

Voith provides the suitable propulsion solution: Voith Schneider Propellers combine propulsion and steering in one unit. Voith Inline Thrusters are the perfect combination of power and low maintenance, as they require neither gear nor shaft. Voith Radial Propellers that pivot 360 degrees ensure perfect positioning.

Clouds rush overhead, strong winds shake the rotor towers. And carry away anything that hasn't been secured. Out here, far from the shore, the sea forms towering waves. Day in, day out.
