Wind Energy – Design Transformer Platform
Dutch offshore engineering company Iv-Offshore & Energy has signed a contract with Singapore-based construction firm Seatrium (ex-Sembcorp Marine) for the design of the 2GW IJmuiden Ver Beta platform, to be deployed in the North Sea, offshore the Netherlands.
This platform is the first in a series of 2GW transformer platforms that the GE-Seatrium (GSC) consortium will supply for the Dutch transmission systems operator TenneT, to support offshore wind expansion.
Iv-Offshore & Energy will be responsible for the detailed engineering of the offshore converter platform – currently the largest of its kind – for both the topside and the jacket.
The company will also be responsible for the delivery of equipment and auxiliary systems.
