The establishment of a steelwork production and assembly operation for the production of complete foundation structures for offshore wind turbines was completed at the end of March 2009. Cuxhaven Steel Construction GmbH (CSC) produces wind turbines for wind farms in the North Sea and Baltic Sea. This allows the offshore components to be produced entirely independent of weather conditions – up to a mass production of 100 foundation units per year. By mounting below the ceiling, on-time delivery can be achieved that was previously unattainable for offshore projects. The installation of large air handling units was necessary to provide air conditioning for the huge ceiling heights.
