Petrofac awarded a contract to design and build Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm

Petrofac has been awarded the contract to design and build Scotland's largest offshore wind farm - the £6 billion Seagreen project off Angus – Insider reports.

The international engineering firm has begun work after entering a Preferred Supplier Agreement with operator SSE Renewables. It will design, supply and install the HVAC onshore and offshore substations for the project 27km off the coast of Angus.

Subject to a final investment decision, Petrofac will provide 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.

Elie Lahoud, Petrofac's group managing director for engineering & construction

Petrofac has a strong track record in offshore wind, specialising to date in the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of HVDC and HVAC offshore and onshore substations for major international wind farms. Recent projects include the BorWin3 offshore grid connection project in the German North Sea, the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) Alpha and Beta platforms in the Dutch North Sea and a turnkey power system for the Galloper offshore wind farm off the coast of Suffolk.
