DOF Subsea and Kvaerner have entered into a contract to collaborate and deliver marine operations for Equinor`s Hywind Tampen Project through a 50/50 joint venture.
The Hywind Tampen project will be installed offshore Norway, west of Bergen and will supply electrical power to the nearby oil and gas platforms Gullfaks A, B, C and Snorre A and B.
The two companies will be responsible for full project management, engineering, assembly site management, mooring system installation, units tow-to -field and installation of the floating wind turbine units at the Tampen area.
Several offshore construction vessels will be deployed from DOF Subsea during project phases, including the 2011-built Skandi Skansen.
“Hywind Tampen will be the world’s largest floating offshore wind farm and is vital for industrialising solutions and reducing costs for future offshore wind power projects. The deep-water floating renewables market is on the verge of commercialization, and therefore this contract has strategic importance to DOF Subsea,” said Mons Aase, CEO of DOF Subsea.
