General – HVDC Convertor Platform
On 15 October, the HVDC offshore wind convertor platform DolWin epsilon left Seatrium’s yard in Singapore.
It is now heading for Aibel in Haugesund for final installation of electrical equipment and commissioning.
The DolWin epsilon platform is constructed by consortium partners Aibel and Seatrium as part of the DolWin5 project for the client TenneT.
The sailaway from Singapore marks an important milestone and showcases the capabilities of Aibel and Seatrium in the ongoing energy transition.
“We are proud soon to have another HVDC converter platform under our belt. This is the second for TenneT after delivering DolWin beta, our very first offshore wind platform, back in 2015. Since then, we’ve really moved forward within renewables, and this milestone is evidence of both companies’ strong positions and joint ambitions in the green shift,” says President and CEO of Aibel, Mads Andersen.
The DolWin epsilon transport to Aibel’s yard in Haugesund will arrive in the second half of December.
Here, Aibel and Hitachi Energy will install the final technical equipment, including the HVDC converter and transformers, prior to commissioning.
