From gale to green shipping

From gale to green shipping If all goes well, it will, in a few years, be possible to convert the power from the wind turbines at the Port of Hvide Sande to hydrogen which in a fuel cell will be able to supply engine power to the vessel keeping the local port entrance free of sand. But the ambitions of the new ShippingLab project are far greater. The goal is to make the use of hydrogen commercially viable within shipping in general – through a successful local project, new technology and substantial paper work. ShippingLab has granted support to the...

New work platform for FLEXWIND

Hvide Sande Steel has just completed the development and production of a CSWP (crane supported work platform) for Flexwind. The new work platform is used both onshore and offshore for inspection and repair of wind turbine blades. The platform, which is covered, allows repairs on the front and rear edge of the blade in a controlled environment, where temperature, humidity and other environmental parameters can be controlled. Therefore, it is almost comparable to the conditions of an onshore production facility. The work platform is hoisted by a crane and placed on the turbine blade. It can be used in winds...
