In 2019, Dogger Bank Wind Farm awarded Aibel the contract for two converter platforms for the first two phases of the project, Dogger Bank A and Dogger Bank B.
In May 2019, Aibel was awarded a similar contract for the offshore wind project DolWin5 from the German grid operator TenneT. Projects within renewable energy are becoming an increasingly larger part of Aibel’s project portfolio.
“With this award, we once again confirm our position as a preferred supplier in the European offshore wind segment and strengthen our role in the ongoing energy industry transformation,” says Aibel’s President and CEO, Mads Andersen.
“Together with our partner Hitachi ABB Power Grids, our skilled engineers have developed integrated solutions and established an efficient supply chain for our deliveries. We are proud to see that our concept wins in a very competitive environment,” says Executive Vice President for Field development and Offshore wind in Aibel, Nils Arne Hatleskog.
Dogger Bank Wind Farm project is headed from Aibel in Haugesund, while the platform’s topsides are under construction at Aibel’s yard in Thailand.
The Dogger Bank A platform is expected to arrive in Haugesund in the first half of 2022, where it will be outfitted with Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ latest generation HVDC converter technology, including final completion and commissioning. It will be ready for sail away to the Dogger Bank field in 2023, and final completion later that year.
The delivery of Dogger Bank B is scheduled for 2024, while Dogger Bank C is scheduled for 2025.
