Red-D-Arc recently supplied a variety of equipment to a UAE based company that is fabricating pile piping and jackets for the largest offshore wind farm project in the world. The company had to meet a strict time line of only 6 months, and would require a massive amount of welding and weld automation equipment immediately. Through consultation with Red-D-Arc, the customer determined that renting the majority of the equipment would be the most economical option. Red-D-Arc was able to fulfil the customers equipment needs immediately thanks to our vast and diverse fleet of equipment.
This massive order involved equipment and support from Red-D-Arc North America, Red-D-Arc UK and Red-D-Arc Middle East. The order consisted of a variety of welding and weld automation equipment including:
• 23 column and booms with single and tandem submerged arc welders
• 20 submerged arc tractors
• 200 rotators
• 167 jack-up rotators
• 400 CC/CV inverter welders
• 200 FCAW wirefeeders
• 10 Induction Heating Systems
By renting the majority of the equipment the fabrication company avoided the need to invest heavily in specialized equipment and ensured they would meet their deadline.

Red-D-Arc delivered three submerged arc systems to a construction company from Willebroek (Belgium) which has acquired a record contract for the construction of foundation structures to be used in an offshore wind farm close to the German-Dutch border. The Red-D-Arc manipulators are 23 ft x 23 ft and are equipped with a double wire system powered by the ESAB 1250 for welding 4 mm cored wire. In addition, each of the manipulators included a seam tracking system and flux recovery unit. Thanks to the advanced electronics and touch screen interface controls the turnkey systems each require only a single operator.
