Bladt Industries A/S and the German company EEW Special Pipe Constructions GmbH recently signed a contract to supply the foundations for the 468 MW Cape Wind offshore project, located off the coast of Nantucket Island.

Bladt Industries and EEW SPC note they have worked closely together in the past to manufacture foundations across Europe, many of which were for Siemens 3.6 MW wind turbines - the same type that will be used for the Cape Wind project.

In total, 101 monopiles and transition pieces will be manufactured and shipped to the harbor of New Bedford, Mass. The monopiles will be produced at EEW’s facilities in Rostock, Germany, and the transition pieces will be made at Bladt Industries’ facilities in Aalborg, Denmark. Production will start in January 2015.

In addition, the companies note they are looking forward to contributing to the success of what could be the first offshore wind farm in the U.S. and hope that this will be the start of a new market.
