DOF Subsea signs today a contract with Kværner to collaborate and deliver Marine
Operations for Equinor`s Hywind Tampen Project. The contract shall be executed
in a 50/50 partnership (joint venture) with Kværner.
"Hywind Tampen will be the world's largest floating offshore wind farm and is
vital for industrialising solutions and reducing costs for future offshore wind
power projects. The deep-water floating renewables market is on the verge of
commercialization, and therefore this contract has strategic importance to DOF
Subsea" says Mons Aase, CEO in DOF Subsea.
The Hywind Tampen project will be installed offshore Norway, west of the city
Bergen and will supply electrical power to the nearby oil and gas platforms
Gullfaks A, B, C and Snorre A and B. The combined effect from the 11 turbines
will be 88 megawatts and will replace about 35 percent of the five platforms'
energy demand. Today, the energy required to run these platforms is supplied by
The project will reduce Norwegian CO 2 emissions with more than
200?000 tonnes per year, which is equivalent to the emissions from 100?000 cars.
In addition, analysis confirm that the hulls made of concrete have a favourable
CO 2 footprint compared to several other solutions. Hywind Tampen will also be
leveraged to further reduce the CO 2 footprint in future projects.
DOF Subsea and Kværner has entered into a 50/50 joint venture to deliver Hywind
Tampen marine operations. The scope includes full project management,
engineering, assembly site management, mooring system installation, units tow-to
-field and installation of the floating wind turbine units at the Tampen area.
Several state-of-the-art construction vessels will be deployed from DOF Subsea
during project phases, including the 2011 built Skandi Skansen. The vessels,
together with a competent onshore and offshore organisation, shall ensure a safe
and efficient delivery of Hywind Tampen marine operations project.
