Equinor and the Johan Sverdrup partnership submit a letter of award to NKT for fabrication and installation of two high-voltage cables supplying power from shore for the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup development.
The letter of award is for an EPCI contract covering engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and testing of two high-voltage power cables to the Johan Sverdrup field centre from shore.
The high-voltage cables are 200 kilometres long and designed for a supply capacity of 200 MW/80 kV. This covers the power requirements for the second phase of the Johan Sverdrup field development scheduled for start-up in Q4 2022 and will also enable the supply of power from shore to other fields at Utsira High.
The total contract value is just over NOK 1 billion.
NKT was also responsible for the fabrication and installation of the power cables for the first phase of the Johan Sverdrup development, which were installed in the spring of this year.
