At the end of March, euskalforging has purchased a new lathe to turn rings up to Ø 12.000 mm (outside diameter). During the following months, the lathe will be dismantled and transported to euskalforging’s facility in Sestao. It is scheduled to be ready for production by the end of October.
euskalforging's expansion in large and heavy rings is being consolidated by gaining market share in the coke drums industry.
Continuing with euskalforging’s commercial strategy, the company is expanding its business to new niche markets as panoramic towers.
euskalforging will supply four ∅9.626mm rolled rings to ExxonMobil refinery. This is a big milestone for euskalforging as it will be produced using the new RAW SMS-Thyssen Wagner 1.000/1.000 and the rest of the committed new investments. The rings will be transported directly by barge from euskalforging’s direct access quay to the customer´s quay.
euskalforging will supply 116 sets of flanges for the double hull offshore wind monopile foundation. The scope of the project consists of 3 types of rolled rings (Top Transition Piece, Bottom Transition piece and Monopile) starting at ∅5.000mm and finish machined for each of the 116 foundations that will be installed off the English coast.
