Offshore / Renewable Energy
Renewable energy has taken flight in recent years. We are increasingly using the sun, wind and water to generate energy.
Kersten has long been active as a leader in bending technology in the Renewable Energy sector. We deliver items that include curved components and structures for offshore wind turbines.
Curved components and constructions play an increasingly important role in the Renewable Energy sector. For example, Offshore Wind, Hydro Power and Tidal Energy:
Offshore wind turbines have various foundation constructions such as jackets, monopiles, tripods and tripiles. Kersten was active in the Offshore Wind sector when it was still in its infancy. We know as no other what is involved when developing the heavy foundation constructions of offshore windmills. Kersten produces, amongst others:
- Cable Access Towers
- (Bevelled) cones for jacket constructions
- Platform parts
- Heavy cones and cylinders for transition-pieces, monopile foundations, jacket constructions and tripods.
Curved parts are also common in Hydro Energy. Consider:
- Cylindrical basis of Archimedes pumps
- Screws of Archimedes pumps
- Hydro Power Units
- Water turbines
