Harnessing the power of offshore wind relies on a durable solution that can withstand the most severe conditions. Bondstrand™ has been trusted for over fifty years as the non-metallic solution for offshore projects. With its weight saving and anticorrosive properties our products are ideally suited to these harsh environments. Built for longevity, our composite solutions offer proven structural and operational integrity, whilst requiring reduced maintenance. Combining these qualities make our products perfectly suited to Normally Unmanned Installations (NUI) / Normally Unmanned Facilities (NUF). With a significant overall reduction in CO2 footprint compared with traditional materials, Bondstrand’s green credentials can positively contribute to our clients' environmental footprint assessments.
Offshore wind substations, wind turbine installation vessels, floating offshore wind turbines and fixed offshore wind turbines have all benefited from our glass-reinforced epoxy (GRE) piping and fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) structures. By combining our unique range of engineering services and the versatility of our Bondstrand products we help end-users to reduce their total cost of ownership and assist to achieve overall eco targets.

Dolwin 6, Rampion, Dogger Bank, BorWin3, Borssele Alpha and Borssele Beta substations have all benefited from Bondstrand GRE piping and FRP grating. We have provided piping solutions for fresh water, seawater, sewage, drainage and grating for the cable deck and equipment deck.
Wind Turbine Installation Vessels
We are proud to support our clients with exceptionally engineered solutions. Our Bondstrand piping has been utilized in the ballast water system, freshwater cooling system, sea water cooling system and the leg jetting system on numerous Wind Turbine Installation Vessels, with our MARRS FRP handrail and phenolic grating providing the optimal solution for platforms and stairs.
Floating Offshore Wind Turbines
Our composites provide quality, longevity, and efficiency throughout the project life cycle and are engineered to endure hogging and sagging of the hull and any vibration from the wind turbine generator. Outside of the hull our MARRS FRP handrails, and FRP platforms and stairs are built to endure wind, salt/chemical and snow/ice. The nature of our products mean they are ideally suited for NUI / NUF’s.
Fixed Offshore Wind Turbines
As with floating offshore wind turbines, our GRE piping and FRP structures are ideally suited for fixed wind projects. Our corrosion resistant, lightweight type approved products offer value engineered cost-effective solutions with reduced maintenance, proven structural and operational integrity, and significant overall reduction in CO2 footprint.
