Danish suppliers of foundations and substations for the offshore wind market, Bladt Industries have announced that it now invests in an expansion of the production facilities at Lindø port of Odense, Denmark. Over time, Bladt Industries has been part of the supply to almost one-third of the world’s offshore wind turbine foundations.

With the expansion, the company will be among the first suppliers to produce the foundations for future offshore wind turbines reaching a height of up to 250 to 300 meters.

Commenting on the development, Anders SøeJensen, CEO at Bladt Industries said, “Soon, most wind farms will be dominated by 15-megawatt turbines with a rotor diameter of 240 meters. These turbines require an enormous foundation fixed to the seabed, and now, we are moving one step closer to meeting the future demand, while, at the same time, consolidating our position as one of the leading suppliers of offshore wind foundations and substations.”

We are planning to initiate a new production, where the enormous XXL Monopile Foundations will be manufactured, which we expect to be ready to deliver in 2022, said the company in its statement.

The investment and the size of the production site will be changed to meet the market demand for monopiles reaching 100 meters in length and 15 meters in diameter. These monopiles can weigh more than 3,000 tonnes each over the length of a football field.

In Denmark, Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, CIP’s Michael Hannibal remarks: “We know that the global market for offshore wind energy will grow in the next few years. We also know that the Danish wind power industry must invest massively to keep its leading position which is particularly significant in offshore wind power. Therefore, it is positive that Bladt Industries now takes the next step towards scaling their production capacity in Odense. This will resonate well with the global wind power industry where we need to position ourselves as a pioneering country within wind energy.”
