Hammock for flexible and safe monopile transport – Interview with Thijs Roethof of TWD
TWD has designed a hammock to support monopiles during transport. This innovative seafastening is suitable for monopiles with a diameter between 7 and 11 metres. In addition, it divides the forces on the tube more evenly. This allows contractors to safely transport various wind turbine monopiles with a thinner and therefore more vulnerable wall thickness. An interview with Thijs Roethof of TWD.
