Euskalforging supplies the largest and heaviest flange to the offshore wind market

euskalforging  has taken part in the new mono bucket foundations at the Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm off the coast of Germany. The foundations will consist of a single steel cylinder, known as a suction bucket, that uses its own weight and vacuum pressure to embed on the sea floor. This method eliminates the need for pile driving, and, consequently, for noise mitigation measures; this will mean a significantly reduced environmental impact in comparison to usually applied construction methodologies.

Under the terms of the contract, euskalforging has rolled, heat treated, machined and delivered to the customer 2 seamless rolled rings with an outer diameter of ∅8530 and mm and more than 20 tons of final weight.
