As reported in April 2017, ST3 Offshore, a leading European serial manufacturer of offshore steel foundations, is to fabricate 20 suction bucket jackets for the Borkum Riffgrund 2 offshore wind farm. As part of this agreement, H&W manufactured and exported 24 suction buckets to ST3’s advanced serial manufacturing plant in Stettin, Poland, where they would be fitted to the jacket foundations prior to the jacket installation in the German Bight (North sea).
