Metal Buildings For Wind Turbine Manufacturing Facilities & Offshore Wind Factories

Posted by Ben Sparhawk on Apr 26, 2022 4:27:00 PM

Wind turbines have grown in both height and blade length, and they have generated more energy since the early 2,000s.

In 2020 renewable energy grew faster than they have since 1999.

Solar and wind energy made up 90 percent of the power sector's growth globally in 2020.

That means there will be a demand for wind turbines now and into the future.

But, where are wind turbines made?

In the article below, we will discuss why a metal building is an ideal choice for a wind turbine manufacturing facility.

What's A Wind Turbine?

A wind turbine converts kinetic energy from the wind into electricity.

Depending on the technology used in the turbine, the blades turn between 13 and 20 revolutions per minute.

They spin at a constant or variable velocity.

The velocity of the rotor varies in relation to the velocity of the wind to reach greater efficiency.

Most wind turbines have an average life of over 25 years due to the rapid evolution of wind technology.

To connect to electricity produced by the wind turbines, the electrical energy is passed through a transformer on site.

The transformer increases the voltage to be used by the national electricity system.

This is when the electricity moves onto the National Grid transmission network, ready to be passed on to be used in homes and businesses.

A wind farm (a group of wind turbines) or a single wind turbine can generate electricity to be used privately by an individual or small set of homes or businesses.

It's impressive to think that the electricity that powers so much in our lives can start as a simple gust of wind.

Are Metal Buildings Ideal For Wind Turbine Manufacturing Facilities?

Using a prefab metal building for a wind turbine manufacturing plant makes perfect sense.

Manufacturing turns raw materials into new products, in this case, a wind turbine.

No one understands this concept better than the pre-engineered metal building industry.

Quality-controlled steel manufacturing buildings create prefabricated steel buildings.

WInd turbine manufacturing operations require a unique set of building features.

Steel manufacturing plant buildings can be designed according to their specific use.

Steel building manufacturing kits feature clear-span framing to maximize your square footage.

From wind turbine-specific equipment to functional efficiency, metal facilities provide the design flexibility needed for manufacturing success. 

The Benefits of Using a Prefabricated Steel Building for Your Manufacturing Needs

The wind-turbine industry emphasizes efficiency.

That's why a prefabricated metal building kit is the perfect choice for wind turbine manufacturing facilities.

A metal manufacturing facility will provide a reliable home for your operations.

Metal building kits are versatile and able to meet the needs of a wind turbine production facility.

You can design or modify a metal building kit to meet your manufacturing infrastructure so your space is efficient.

Prefabricated metal buildings also have many other benefits beyond efficiency.

For example, they are environmentally friendly, cost-effective, versatile, and flexible.

Metal building kits often cost less than other construction methods built with pricier materials.

And steel is the most durable building material, so you are getting a structure that will last a long-time, and they often come with warranties.

Metal building kits are made to be versatile, so if you ever need a different framework or additional space, you can easily expand.

CDMG's metal buildings are built with Nucor's steel, making them 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly.
