Burns & McDonnell and Bladt Industries

The offshore wind revolution is coming to America. It makes sense as the wind at sea blows stronger and more consistently than the wind on land. Ask any sailor. PUF didn't use that excuse to go offshore sailing, instead finding experts from two continents who are brought together in a quest to capture the wind as part of the decarbonization revolution.
Here, we bring you Bladt Industries from Denmark, which specializes in building steel structures, and is a pioneer on the foundation side for offshore wind turbines. Bladt has entered an exciting partnership with the more familiar Burns & McDonnell to capture those winds offshore America especially taking aim at the Eastern Seaboard.
PUF talks here with Brett Williams of Burns & McDonnell and Bo Moerup of Bladt Industries about what it takes to build these massive structures far out in deep waters. Not an easy task.
PUF's Steve Mitnick: What's this big announcement and what are we going to see happen in the coming years?
Brett Williams: This announcement is exciting. It's leveraging the strengths of two established companies to execute work along the Eastern Seaboard in an industry that hasn't yet arrived in the U.S.
