Wind Energy – Offshore Substation Platforms
Seatrium is awarded two Offshore Substation Platform engineering, procurement, construction, offshore hook-up and commissioning contracts for Empire Wind 1 and 2 Offshore Wind Farms.
The contract from Empire Offshore Wind, a joint venture between Equinor and bp, is worth more than S$500 million for two offshore wind farm substations
This contract award follows the successful completion of the FEED (Front-End Engineering and Design) contract which was secured by SMOP in 2022. The scope of the project involves the engineering, procurement, construction, offshore hook-up and commissioning of two Offshore Substation (OSS) Platforms for the Empire Wind 1 and 2 Offshore Wind Farms located about 20 miles south of Long Island, east of the Rockaways.
Following completion, the Empire Wind 1 and 2 OSS Platforms will be operated by Equinor.
Construction works on the 810MW Empire Wind 1 Platform and the 1,260MW Empire Wind 2 Platform are expected to commence in 4Q2023 and 2H2024 respectively at Seatrium’s Singapore and Indonesia yards.
The Group is also constructing a Wind Turbine Installation Vessel (WTIV) for deployment at the Empire Wind Farms based on a breakthrough design jointly developed with the customer Maersk Supply Service. The next-generation WTIV is designed with capabilities to handle larger capacity wind turbines.
