Written by: Diego Morbini – Faccin Wind Tower Division Manager

With only the first Faccin rolling line we were able to witness their excellent capabilities in meeting our challenges, this is why it was an easy choice to have FACCIN as our trusted partner once again,” CS WIND PT said. ”With the successful installation of this brand-new CNC controlled plate rolling line, we’ve seen an increases in capacity and also an enhanced optimization in the production planning.

The decision-making process that led to the purchase of a new second rolling line was based on overall satisfaction of the first line supplied in 2020. On that occasion, the gap between expectations and performances were surpassed. CS Wind has reaffirmed the same technical preferences for the installation of a new fully automatic CNC rolling line at their Portuguese production site. This cutting-edge technology will be utilized to manufacture high-quality offshore towers.
