Wind Energy – Dogger Bank C
Dogger Bank Wind Farm owners SSE Renewables, Equinor, and Eni have awarded Heerema Marine Contractors a contract for the transport and installation of the Dogger Bank C offshore substation.
The work will include transporting and installing the 3,500 metric ton jacket foundation, four main piles, and the 9,500 metric ton offshore substation topside.
Heerema will perform offshore lifting to position the jacket foundation on the scour bed, using main piles to provide jacket on-bottom stability. The offshore substation will be lifted from a barge prior to the set-down on the jacket foundation.
Heerema’s Wind Director, Jeroen van Oosten, said: “We are proud to be working together with valued clients SSE Renewables, Equinor, and Eni to deliver this historic project. Installing sizeable offshore substations is core business for Heerema Marine Contractors and we are looking forward to working together on the preparation and installation of Dogger Bank C.”
Steve Wilson, Project Director for Dogger Bank Wind Farm, said: “Installation of the offshore substation on the third phase of Dogger Bank Wind Farm will be a significant moment for our world-leading project. We welcome Hereema to our strong team of tier-one suppliers, and we look forward to working with them to install this innovative platform on the DBC site.”
