After more than 15 years of experience in the offshore energy industry, the EEW Group decided to expand their activities in this industrial sector. For this reason EEW established EEW OSB in 2014 in the UK which is currently one of the most important centres in the offshore wind business. The production facility in north-eastern England, close to the River Tees, is the only manufacturer of large diameter pipes for offshore wind foundations, in particular for transition pieces for monopile foundations, in Great Britain.
EEW OSB which was founded in 2014 is a daughter company of EEW SPC. Since the beginning of production in 2008, EEW SPC has been the leading manufacturer of monopiles and transition pieces for offshore wind farms. The company has participated in more than 30 key offshore wind projects in Europe and North America. Based on this experience EEW OSB is prepared to aim a strong position in the offshore wind market.
With the inclusion of EEW Offshore Structures (Britain) in the network of the EEW Group, EEW is able to offer complete foundations for offshore wind turbines. In addition to monopiles and jacket components, transition pieces are among the key products in our portfolio. By doing so, we can supply our customers in the offshore wind industry from a single source. In addition, the location in England makes it possible for us to fulfil CFD requirements for British offshore wind projects.
The EEW OSB production location close to the River Tees in north-eastern England is the ideal location for the manufacturing of transition pieces for offshore wind foundations. The production facilities, covering 13,000 m², as well as systems for sandblasting and coating on an additional 2,000 m², guarantee the efficient fabrication of our products. The direct access to the sea makes smooth transport possible.
With more than 2,100 employees and nine production facilities throughout the entire world, the EEW Group is the world’s leading specialist for the production of submerged-arc welded pipes.
We move in complex markets where one aspect is more important than all of the others: the development of custom solutions for unique projects. For that, you need abilities and know-how. For that, you need experience. But most importantly, you need employees who make every effort to achieve the best results. Motivated people who gladly meet new challenges are always welcome to become a part of the EEW family. Together we develop new dimensions.
