The development of a new aluminium cover and a new platform for offshore wind farms, is to create attention towards the use of aluminium offshore.
It is not a new invention to make use of aluminium for offshore constructions – the oli and gas industry has been doing so for decades.
Aluwind is working towards stamping out the impressions that only steel can be used for offshore wind. With solide references to the oil and gas industrym aluminium has proven itself well worthy for offshore wind too.
