RSL were chosen by WIilton Engineering to provide the Wilton Engineering and fabrication teams with Dimensional Control assistance throughout the project. This was to include Flange verification surveys using the state of the art, Status Pro Flange measuring equipment.
The 340-tonne transition pieces are part of a project for German company Steelwind to provide 21 structures for Hornsea One. Completed at Wilton Engineering’s fabrication facilities and painted within its coating’s facility on the banks of the River Tees in North East England, the structures were loaded vertically onto a barge to be transported to the offshore wind farm located off the Yorkshire coast.
The cylindrical shell of the transition pieces has been fabricated by Steelwind in Germany before they were transported to Wilton’s 54-acre site on Teesside. Wilton’s scope of works was to manufacture, install and fit all secondary steelwork, this included internal and external platforms, concrete platforms, ladders, boat landings.
