C1 Connections and Heerema Marine Contractors test the C1 Wedge Connection offshore courtesy KloetC1 Connections and Heerema Marine Contractors have tested the C1 Wedge Connection offshore. The C1 Wedge Connection, developed by C1 Connections, is a high-capacity connection that can be installed faster and safer than conventional bolted flange connections, according to the developer.
 
It can be used in off- and onshore wind turbines, both in turbine towers and foundations. The installation of the tower on board Thialf was performed as part of the preparations for the Arcadis Ost project, for which Heerema will install 27 wind turbines for the Belgian developer Parkwind. The development of the C1 Wedge Connection started in early 2017 in close collaboration with Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). From the offset, this technology has received support from the Dutch Government Agency RVO, with several industry partners contributing to its further optimisation.
