Ridderflex: Offshore Wind Innovator 2018

On Thursday the 29th of November 2018, Ridderflex was announced winner of the Offshore Wind Innovation Challenge. With this Challenge innovative startups, entrepreneurs and students were challenged to come up with solutions for specific problems in the construction and maintenance of wind farms. Our challenge was to develop the ‘perfect fender’ for SeaZip Offshore Service.

Polyurethane specialist

As a polyurethane specialist, Ridderflex’s strength is producing polyurethane products. Our tensioner track pad linings, stinger roll linings and cross-overs are indispensable for the installation of pipelines, cables and umbilicals. For the offshore renewable industry we developed polyurethane bearing pads that are an excellent alternative for all elastomeric bearings on the market and PU linings for shipping cradles.

Polyurethane is a unique material. We can adapt the material properties to the application of the product. There are no other materials in our product range, that are so flexible and versatile. Experience shows us that PU products can be the solution to numerous technical problems.

Our laboratory

Ridderflex has a laboratory in which plastics and elastomers can be tested for mechanical and physical properties. We may issue 3.1 certificates on our (compression) moulded materials. Also, we can extensively test polyurethane products, for properties such as the compressibility, the load and shear modulus.

Ridderflex excels in customised products

Ridderflex excels in the production of customised products. We develop and produce essential components for the offshore in any desired plastic or rubber material. Completely custom-made. Simply based on a drawing or a model. Ridderflex: small enough to be flexible, big enough to solve your problem.
