The monopiles reach almost 2000 tonnes, 10m diameter and support the wind industry suffering from bottlenecks on fabrication capacity compounded with current steel crisis in Europe, said Dajin in its official statement.

According to Dajin, the scope of work is for the supply of 48 monopiles and the steel cutting for the first monopile production has already started. The company has developed European Project Management Team that works hand-in-hand with Moray West and Chinese teams.

Dajin claims to be the largest offshore foundation fabricator which has one million tonnes per year production capacity in China. The company is expanding with local content contribution investments into Europe.

Daijin also has an agreement for delivery of monopiles into European Union and offshore structures for United States project. Dajin says that it has acquired and is now developing a new 100h fabrication yard in South of China. It is also planning a foundation facility in Europe.

Dajin informed that after the completion of both facilities, Dajin Heavy Industry will achieve an annual production capacity with 2 million tons. The new facilities will focus on the foundation production for next generation turbines called ‘Tripple XL Monopiles’ as well jackets and floating foundations.

Jin Xin, Owner and Chairmen of Dajin Heavy Industry, stated, “The contract signing with Ocean Winds for Moray West delivery is a great team work achievement.  We also do understand and support local economy benefits arising from offshore wind industry, and accordingly we will continue our efforts to maximize local content for every project we participate.”
