- Offer Profile
- Our story is one of belief, resolve and steel. Lots of steel. Today WELCON primarily manufactures large-scale steel constructions for the renewable energy sector.
In the beginning, more than fifty years ago, our steel constructions were used in the oil and gas industry.
But we changed our focus and strategy, and began developing large-scale steel constructions: The towers for the early wind turbines in the wind adventure.

Steel the Future.
- For the past fifty years, our steel solutions have helped pioneer the development of the renewable energy business. And we will meet the future in that same spirit.
Less Talk. More Action.
While the world is talking, we are busy engineering and building the future.
Changing the way we think and use the resources we were given is a pretty big thing. The journey and transition towards a world powered by renewable energy sources is necessary and inevitable.
We’ve played an active part in the wind business since the beginning, and pioneered the development of larger and more powerful wind turbines. Due to our significant track record, we are now recognized as industry leaders in both size and technology.
We believe in the power of steel. And with the strength of our product and company, we choose to do our part in making our planet an even greater place to live.
In all that we are and in all that we do, we look ahead, think and act according to our set of values – the foundation of our being, business and collaboration.
Deliver as agreed on time. That’s what we do. We take time to understand the scope of a given project, define our offer and deliver exactly that at the right time.
We always look ahead and explore new ground, because new and better solutions never appear out of nothing. Knowledge is and always has been the key.
While the world is talking, wondering and pondering, we use our experience and knowledge to create new opportunities and business instead.
Collaboration works when we understand each other, share knowledge, data and progress in a way, that is easy to understand. So that’s what we aim to be – accessible.

Pioneering Steel Construction.
Change and innovation are driven by those who act and dare to make the impossible possible. We believe in steel. That’s why we’ve cut, rolled, welded and perfected our understanding and capabilities with this material. Some call it pioneering – we simply say “Steel the Future”.
Our production facilities are one-of-a-kind in the world. Automation, safety, quality and efficiency are key in the way we think and work.
01. Plate Preparation
- To manufacture the best steel constructions in the business,
the starting point must be perfect.
We cut, bevel and quality check
a large number of steel plates.
For this we have a very modern and large facility, enabling in-house plate preparation of all steel plates.
02. Plate Rolling
- Try to roll a small sheet of metal into a perfect circle. It isn’t that easy to get it just right?
Now, imagine rolling a massive sheet of steel into a perfect circle
of up to nine meters in diameter, where millimeter precision is essential. Quite a task, right?
We do this every day and can roll steel plates with thickness up to
- The art of welding is the craft and science of deep material understanding, precision and innovation.
We’ve developed and optimized this craft through more than half a century, and our process, efficiency and quality is renowned throughout the industry.
04. Surface Treatment
- Perfect perception and ultimate protection is essential, when you manufacture quality constructions able to withstand the forces of nature and the test of time.
Our surface treatment facility does exactly that, on a very large scale.
- Every product is different from the others in one way or the other.
Regardless of specific use and assembly needs, our skilled and experienced engineers and assembly teams get the job done – in close sparring and collaboration with our customers.
Everybody has special needs
– we have special skills.
06. Loading & Transport
- We manufacture very large and heavy products, and we have the equipment to handle it.
Every new and shiny tower or construction leaving our factory is venturing on a special voyage to be part of a cleaner and even better future.
If You Can Dream It.
We engineer and manufacture large steel constructions primarily for the renewable energy sector.
We Can Steel It.
We are big, and big is actually better in our industry. But rest assured, our way of collaboration is down to earth. And we are easy to do business with.
Facilities & Capacity.
Everything at our production facility is large-scale, but we always operate with attention to detail, monitor and document when relevant and necessary.
Cutting capacity per year
We cut, roll and weld a massive amount of steel every year. You can count on us to be best in class doing this, due to our vast experience and skills, developed throughout the years – adjusting to market demands and client preferences.
Overhead crane capacity
Look up – there’s something in the air! It
really is impressive to watch our massive steel constructions in our manufacturing facilities float effortlessly through the air.
What we do is heavy, but we have the
equipment to handle it.
We’ve made a lot of wind turbine towers throughout the years. But as long as it is made from steel, we can make other products as well, with weights all the way up to 300 ton.
As with the weight of our products, we can also go large, when it comes to the length of our products. And as size matters in our industry, we can handle products up to 45 m.
We have always pushed the limit for how large we can go, in terms of towers for wind turbines.
Today we can manufacture constructions up to ø9.000 mm., and surface treat up to ø7.500 mm.
Section capacity per year
That’s quite a few. And it makes us one of the largest suppliers of towers in the industry.
We need a lot of space to manufacture
our towers and other steel constructions.
Our facility is technologically state-of-the-art, and highly automated.
And we continously optimize our production.
- ø8.2 x 45m.
Our automated surface treatment facility is nothing less than spectacular.
We blast, metallize and paint the massive steel components, and verify that the end products always meet the specifications agreed upon.
