Today “BREEDVELD & WEAVER” is active in all sectors of industry, from the smallest workshop to the largest factory.

Arklow Wind Farm, Ireland

Some 10 kilometers off the coast of Arklow in the east of Ireland the first Irish offshore wind turbine park is being constructed by Airtricity consisting of 7 turbines, with a total capacity of 25,2 MegaWatt.

The turbines, with a capacity of 3.6 MW, a weight of 290 tonnes and a rotor diameter of 104 meters are the single largest ever used. Prior to permanently installing the 72 meters high towers, called monopiles, with a base diameter of 5 meters, onto their seabed foundation, they have to be hydraulicly aligned.

Again, “BREEDVELD & WEAVER” supplied the allignment systems consisting of 7 sets with a total of 42 single acting spring return cylinders including shut-off valves, hoses, connectors, manifolds and 7 two-stage hand pumps.
