Offshore engineering specialist Petrofac has entered into an agreement with SSE Renewables to design, supply and install the HVAC onshore and offshore substations for the Seagreen wind farm project to be built offshore Scotland.
Petrofac has commenced early work on the project. Its full scope will include the engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation, offshore installation and commissioning of the offshore substation platform, including the topside, jacket and piles.
“We have been involved in a number of similar projects in the North Sea and are delighted to have been appointed to be part of the Seagreen project, which will be Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm. This will enable us to continue to grow our capability and experience in offshore wind and supports our diversification into renewable energy. Along with the wider team involved, I look forward to the safe and quality delivery of both the onshore and offshore substations,” said Elie Lahoud, Petrofac’s group managing director of engineering & construction.
