The Front Cover
Since 2011 STX Finland has been leading the development of systematic ‘design-to-cost’ turnkey deliveries of foundations for offshore wind turbines. STX has employed a gravity-based design that reduces manufacturing, logistics and installation costs and time. In August 2013, the first two of these innovative offshore foundations were produced and installed successfully in cooperation with Terramare Oy to serve as fairway marker substructures in Gävle, Sweden.
