WELDING AUTOMATION FOR FOUNDATIONS

Adaptive robot welding.

A jacket structure has a much more complex geometry than a monopile foundation. Essentially, a jacket consists of three or four legs diagonally and horizontally braced against a transition piece in the center. The legs are also interconnected with bracing to provide the stiffness required.

High level of automation

The share of the cost of the foundation relative to the complete wind turbine installation is considerably higher than with onshore foundations. It is extremely important to optimise every part of the foundation production flow to minimize all associated costs.

PEMA offshore foundation manufacturing lines are always specially engineered for the manufactured foundation type, ensuring the highest reasonable automation level. Therefore, the productivity and quality produced by PEMA solution is superior to that of other manufacturing lines.

Robotised node welding station for jackets

Automatization of node welding is one possibility to increase efficiency in jacket production. Demanding weld shapes can be handled with parametrized robot programming and laser-based seam tracking.

 

Production lines for jacket legs and piles

Jacket legs and piles are made from relatively thick material but have smaller diameters than other offshore foundation structures. PEMA has specialized solutions with submerged arc welding.
