Marmen and Welcon ink U.S fabrication agreement

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed by Marmen and Welcon to secure orders for turbine towers and Stiesdal foundations for the U.S offshore wind market. Under the MoU, the two companies have agreed to form a jointly owned and distinct entity and seek to build a manufacturing plant in the Northeastern U.S.

Quebec headquartered fabrication firm Marmen serves multiple markets, including aviation, oil and gas, hydropower, steam and gas turbines, turbo machines, mining and steel mills, infrastructure and many more. It is also one of the largest manufacturers of onshore wind towers in North America.

Welcon A/S is a Danish company which manufactures steel components with a particular focus on towers, foundations and other steel structures for the wind turbine industry. It also holds production rights for the Stiesdal floating and bottom fixed offshore foundations.

“We are very excited about our new partnership. We strongly believe that it represents the best combination of expertise and talent possible to dive into the huge opportunity that represents the U.S. offshore wind market,” said Patrick Pellerin, President of Marmen.

“This partnership unites two well-experienced companies in the wind industry in a joint venture which will contain all the ingredients needed to design, build and operate a top modern tower/foundation factory with lean production and robot technology in the production lines," said Carsten Pedersen, Chairman of Welcon.
