Offshore Wind

BiFab's track record of successful projects for jacket sub-structures for offshore wind farms includes:

  • Beatrice - Two jacket sub-structures
  • Alpha Ventus - Six jacket sub-structures
  • Ormonde - Thirty jacket sub-structures

The two support structures for the experimental Beatrice DOWNVInD project was sponsored by Talisman, SSE, European Commission, DTI and the Scottish Executive and became the deepest offshore wind installation in the world when it was installed in 2006.

BiFab continues to expand this side of the business and is now one of the leading suppliers of jacket support structures for offshore wind turbines in Europe.

BiFab can offer a complete EPC solution for up to 150 jackets per year.

In addition to jacket sub-structures for turbines BiFab also supplies jacket sub-structures, again on an EPC basis, for offshore transformer platforms. Projects here include two jackets for the Ormonde project and two for the Gwynt y Mor project.
