Across the globe, the push from on- to offshore activities has led to wind turbines becoming much larger. They have higher MW capacities and are positioned in larger arrays and harsher waters. At the same time, production costs are an important factor.At Royal IHC, we have the knowledge and experience to rise to the challenges facing the offshore wind industry by providing cutting-edge solutions worldwide. We offer robust and reliable solutions for every stage of an offshore wind farm’s life cycle. We are also developing smart solutions for the forthcoming floating wind turbines.
Our range of offshore wind equipment can be used for foundation and turbine installation, cablelay operations and the operation and maintenance of offshore wind farms. IHC can provide fully integrated deck spreads or modular components depending on project requirements.
We design and build offshore carousels incorporating innovative technology for the safe, reliable and rapid spooling – and storage – of power cables, umbilical cables, and rigid and flexible products.Read more
