The C1 Wedge Connection™ can be used offshore and onshore.
With the continuous growth of offshore wind turbines and the increasing rotor size of next generation wind turbines the current L-flanges are pushed to their technical limits. Often, with the increasing growth of offshore wind in Asia and the USA, additional site-specific conditions such as hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes and extreme waves go far beyond the capabilities of the conventional L-flange connection.
When considering the increasingly popular floating wind turbines even higher loads on the connection are often observed.
The effortless scalability of the C1 Wedge Connection™ guarantees a solution for all bottom-founded and floating wind turbines in even the harshest site conditions.
With the growth in tower height and the growth in power rating of onshore wind turbines, the loads on tower sections increases. The C1 Wedge Connection™ can deliver the required high capacity without requiring increasing tower diameters facilitating further growth of onshore wind.
