Offshore Renewables - Offshore wind turbines
A patented A-Frame support system with cast ring has been developed by Vulcan SFM for use in water depths of 20 metres or more and to support turbines of 3.6MW or greater.
This offers significant cost savings compared to alternative structures and ease of installation, coupled with improved fatigue resistance.
A regular supplier of large cast winch drums (for 400 to 600 tonne cable winches)
High strength castings for use in Heavy Lift Vessels and assemblies for FPSO systems.
Designing for manufacture is the team’s specialist field. It converts safety critical and heavily stressed fabricated components into an optimal design of cast component.
Vulcan’s design capabilities include:
- 2D drafting
- 3D solid modelling
- Full Finite Element Analysis
- Solidification simulation
- Detailed hand calculations, loading analysis and fatigue assessments
