Offshore wind energy

Conbit invests in the future of energy and provides a wide range of lifting services for the offshore wind industry with unbeatable know-how about special lifting.

In maintaining and modifying offshore wind farms, Conbit offers an alternative way to use large crane vessels to maximize safety and minimize time, cost, and disruption.

As a trusted partner, Conbit stands in a unique position to support offshore wind turbines and substations in the best way possible.

Offshore wind turbines

Challenging remote areas and increasingly heavy components create great challenges for the maintenance of offshore wind turbines. Conbit creates high-quality and reliable solutions and provides project management, procurement services concerning transport, modification, and maintenance of turbine parts, such as monopiles, jackets, heavy components in the nacelle, blades, and transition pieces, and more.

Offshore wind substations

As a core competency, Conbit delivers safer and more effective solutions for special lifting challenges. Using special equipment for offshore wind substations, we provide lifting capacity and lifting solutions not possible with regular deck cranes. This makes it possible to execute certain types of maintenance and modification operations without the need for heavy lift vessels. Installation services in the form of lifting plans, lifting equipment, and the execution of lifting and maintenance operations are some of the services that Conbit provides for your benefit.

Why alternative special lifting?

The increasing heights and weights require a different O&M approach for the offshore wind industry, which is less dependent on large crane vessels and jack-up barges. Our special lifting services and equipment make it possible to execute certain types of maintenance and modification operations without the need for costly heavy lift vessels.

The advantages of alternative special lifting:

-Eliminates the additional downtime caused by the difficulty of finding an available crane.

-Provides safer exchange of large turbine components offshore when floating foundation structures are moving due to wave motion.

-Delivers cost-effective options by eliminating the use of heavy-lift vessels and contributing to time efficiency.

-Minimizes disruption with supplied extra special lifting capacity if needed during the maintenance procedure.

-Minimizes the project setbacks happening because of weather conditions in comparison to the use of floating crane vessels.

Awarded a fund to discover a new floating wind lifting system

In the context of a technology acceleration competition initiative initiated by Carbon Trust, Conbit has been awarded a fund for an R&D project to study the exchange of major components in an offshore environment by using a customized version of lifting technology Conbit has developed for the offshore Oil & Gas industry. Conbit’s modular lifting system enables the replacement of heavy components inside the nacelle and provides the accuracy needed to ensure a safe installation. Read more

  • An excellent job, guys. Really a demonstration of professional approach, planning and execution of a very demanding challenge. I am fully satisfied with the job done, also with the personal approach of each individual throughout. - Thank you!

Conbit case studies for the wind industry

Offshore wind, the most frequently discussed topic in the wind energy industry, currently represents about 3% of the global installed power-generation capacity. It is a relatively new technology, which is set to reduce wind-energy costs, and will advance in the short term. Conbit has acquired considerable know-how through experience in the offshore wind-energy industry. Read about our lifting projects and sea fastening specifically for the wind industry. Or look at Vickas, our Monopile seafastening product.
