The construction of an off-shore wind turbine involves placing the turbine on monopiles with transition pieces.
The transition piece provides the connection between the foundation and the tower, typically finishing around 20m above mean sea level.
Monopiles are steel tubes that are driven into the sea bed. Transition pieces (TP), which carry the secondary steel elements such as boat landings, ladders and platforms that are required for the safe access and operation of the wind turbines, are then attached to the monopile foundation. The wind turbine tower will then be bolted to the top flange of the transition piece.
Cooper & Turner Ltd manufacture bolts and studs for the Transition Piece (TP) of an off-shore wind turbine. The TP forms a base upon which the wind turbine stands. The monopile and transition piece is connected with a flange solution bolted with M72 HV bolt sets which are offered in a galvanized and sherardized finish.
