Pemamek has delivered two PEMA production automation lines, designed for foundation pin pile production, to CSBC Corporation, Taiwan.

The investment is a part of CSBC’s business development initiative to become an offshore wind-energy turnkey provider and expand its operations in the national offshore wind-energy markets.

The modern production automation solutions will enable CSBC to significantly increase its competitiveness, but also boost manufacturing capacity and end-product quality.

“We are glad to cooperate with experienced production solution provider for the wind energy sector,” said Leo Chen, executive vice president for CSBC Corporation, Taiwan. “This investment will reinforce CSBC’s position as the key player in the Taiwanese offshore wind energy markets and support the company to take a major leap towards future goals.”

The delivery included two extensive PEMA production automation lines designed to manufacture pin piles for offshore jacket foundations. The technologically advanced lines have the capacity of processing pin piles up to 350 tons and 90 meters.

The PEMA production line for foundation pin piles include:

  • Three longitudinal seam welding stations.
  • Two assembly stations capable of welding internal circular seams.
  • Two welding platforms that weld simultaneously with two welding heads.
  • Integrated heavy-duty roller beds with polyurethane rollers.
  • Hi-tech PEMA WeldControl 500 control system with laser-tracking, designed for multi-pass welding.

In addition to the machinery, the agreement includes training, production start-up support, preventive maintenance package, and local service support with an authorized PEMA service partner.

Manufacturing with the PEMA production lines has already started at full speed as CSBC will supply a significant number of foundation pin-piles for Ørsted’s 900-MW Greater Changhua, scheduled for 2021.
