20 years ago, Smulders Projects started making steel towers for onshore wind turbines. About 10 years later and at the instigation of the turbine suppliers, Smulders Projects began constructing steel foundations for offshore wind farms and quickly grew out of the pioneer status to become market leader with a proven track record.
The next step of producing towers for offshore applications was a logical option to complement the product portfolio for the wind turbine market.
The coming decades the market for wind energy will take a leap forward. Turbines are increasing in size and are placed further from shore in deeper waters. Other foundation forms become necessary. Smulders is anticipating this by expanding capacity and facilities, whilst taking into account the changing quality requirements, the most up-to-date technological developments and new generations of foundations.
