Petrofac has entered into a preferred supplier agreement with SSE Renewables to design, supply and install the HVAC onshore and offshore substations for the Seagreen offshore wind project
Petrofac said it has already commenced early work on the project. Subject to a final investment decision expected in the coming months, its full scope will include, on a lump-sum basis, the engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation, offshore installation and commissioning of the offshore substation platform, including the topside, jacket and piles.
The onshore substation engineering, procurement and construction scope includes all civil work and major equipment.
Petrofac group managing director engineering and construction Elie Lahoud said, “We have been involved in a number of similar projects in the North Sea and are delighted to have been appointed to be part of the Seagreen project, which will be Scotland’s largest offshore windfarm. This will enable us to continue to grow our capability and experience in offshore wind and supports our diversification into renewable energy.”
Seagreen project director John Hill said, “We are pleased to welcome the expertise of Petrofac to the Seagreen project. With their experience across engineering, procurement, construction and installation in this sector we have secured a high level of project certainty in delivering this key element of the works.”
Petrofac has a growing track record in offshore wind, specialising to date in the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of HVDC and HVAC offshore and onshore substations.
Recent projects include the BorWin3 offshore grid connection project in the German North Sea, Hollandse Kust Zuid Alpha and Beta platforms in the Dutch North Sea and a turnkey power system for the Galloper offshore windfarm off the coast of Suffolk.
