Transporting wind turbine generator (WTG) components requires robust seafastening structures on the vessel. To overcome the challenges that come with this transport, TWD uses its extensive knowledge in seafastening to provide a tailored solution that is safer and more efficient. To do so, we came up with a concept design for a quick-release tower seafastening. The design ensures a fast uncoupling of the tower and seafastening with clamps, eliminating the need for a bolted interface between the tower and seafastening.
It also brings enhanced efficiency to floating feeder operations of WTG components. Finally, it significantly speeds up the normal jack-up-based WTG installation process, making the installation much safer by excluding any manual handling.
