Sea Tower

Seatower delivers innovative foundations for offshore wind.Our foundations are designed to be installed by buoyancy and low-cost towing vessels, eliminating the need for expensive and weather sensitive installation vessels.

The foundations are optimized for the entire logistics of offshore wind construction – from efficient production to easy decommissioning. In particular, the Cranefree® foundations avoid the expensive and weather-sensitive crane, dredging and piling vessels that do installation today, and of which that are too few to meet the expected needs.

With the protection of over 600 foundations (and counting), we are definitely worldwide number 1 in ICCP for offshore wind farms. Contact us when your steel needs protection!


Blue Piling Technology Fistuca

www.fistuca.com/bluepiling

BLUE Piling Technology (patented) is a revolutionary new technology for driving large piles offshore. The technology breaks with the tradition of using larger and larger steel impact hammers to drive piles offshore but instead utilizes what is abundantly available offshore... water! The technology creates the pile driving energy with a combustion, thereby accelerating a large column of water. The technology allows silent, low fatigue and low costs installation of the largest piles in the world.
