CS Wind UK Completes First Offshore Wind Tower

Wind turbine tower manufacturer CS Wind UK has completed the first offshore wind tower at its fabrication plant in Machrihanish, Scotland.

South Korea’s CS Wind bought the Machrihanish factory, former Wind Towers Scotland, in April 2016, and announced plans to set up the first factory in the UK to commercially produce offshore wind towers, located adjacent to CS Wind’s current onshore wind facilities.

In December 2016, DONG Energy announced it was making a a multi-million pound investment in CS Wind’s new offshore tower manufacturing facility, which gives the offshore wind developer preferred access rights to towers for its offshore wind farms.

CS Wind UK started working on its Machrihanish wind turbine tower factory in July 2016, when it also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Siemens to produce up to 200 towers for the company’s offshore wind turbines between 2017 and 2019.

The same month, the wind tower manufacturer signed an agreement with Vattenfall on the potential supply of components for Vattenfall’s onshore and offshore wind projects in the UK.
