Offshore windfarms are booming in Europe. Installation and operational costs are falling fast, while the amount of power generated is growing.
It’s all thanks to the advent of bigger turbines – but there’s one downside: bigger also means heavier. Luckily, advances in lifting and installation technology are playing a significant part in helping to overcome the challenge and drive costs down further. In one notable case, Gleistein DynaOne® slings made with Dyneema® SK78 fiber helped reduce transport time by three-and-a-half days.
