2nd Wind Energy 2017 seminar

Date: 26/10/2017 - 27/10/2017

Country: Italy

City: Cesena

26th - 27th October in DAVI Auditorium, Italy...


 

The most reputed companies manufacturing offshore foundations & tower components, attended to the 2nd WIND ENERGY 2017 SEMINAR, into DAVI Auditorium in Cesena. After the 1st successful Wind Energy event, that took place on June 2017, it has been possible to evaluate the newest innovative solutions introduced in cooperation with the co-organizers: DAVI, LINCOLN ELECTRIC, PEMA and HGG.


 

The four companies introduced their latest technologies with presentations of their latest innovations.

Some of the topics discussed were following:
  • Factory lay-out and optimized process flow for tower and offshore foundations production
  • Automatic Cutting & Welding system for jackets
  • Most suitable Cone Rolling technology for mass production
  • Innovative Cone Rolling procedure with live demonstration on plate feeding
  • Solution to increase efficiency in fitting and joining of cans to produce tower and foundation sections with live demonstration
  • Robotic applications in offshore wind tower and foundation fabrication
  • Most advanced automation for the welding of tower and foundation elements
  • Welding process solutions along with newly developed consumable products
   

The main event was the stunning LIVE CONE ROLLING DEMONSTRATION when the DAVI line rolled a conical can (8ft wide x 1” thickness at 12ft in diameter for a total 36ft plate length on larger diameter, similar to many wind tower cones) in a few minutes with the maximum accuracy, thanks to the innovative HIGH PRODUCTIVITY “DAVI SMART LINE”.


It’s the ultimate solution to roll plate and form conical cans for wind energy components based on a Davi 4 roll plate bending machine, equipped with the new DAVI INFEED SMART SYSTEM (Davi Patented); a new concept of plate rolling based on a totally redesigned full automatic HIGH PRODUCTIVITY “DAVI SMART LINE”. It allows an automatic bending sequence of the conical cans, with reduced cycle time and virtual no manpower, assuring the perfect accuracy and geometry of the rolled plate. These new developments were thought to improve further the productivity and the quality of the entire fabricating process for the conical sections required for Wind Energy tower and foundations components, both onshore and offshore, making factories more modern and competitive. Benefits of these solutions were highly appreciated by the participants to the seminar.

During both days attendees had the opportunity to discover DAVI headquarters, production workshops and logistic center, being introduced to the DAVI production philosophy, which includes a large number of plate rolls and angle rolls always available in stock for immediate delivery.





Participants had also the possibility to see and inspect the FIVE giant plate rolls with capacity up to 12”, ideal to roll plates for heavy offshore foundations; a complete line for wind towers rolling, as well as an heavy duty angle roll to produce wind towers flanges.
All machines that DAVI keeps ready in stock for his Customers.

Besides the great interest of the participants to the technical topics presented at the Seminar, even more they appreciated the opportunity to discuss with companies involved in the same business, most of them from countries far away, with the possibility to exchange ideas, comments and even suggestions or recommendations about the common business in the Wind Energy Market which was a unique networking opportunity.
