New Sverdrup contract for Aibel
Aibel is awarded the contract to build the converter station that will provide power from shore to the Johan Sverdrup field. The station will be built at Haugsneset, just east of Kårstø in Rogaland.

The contract involves the construction of the onshore converter building and pumphouse with all necessary equipment. In addition, about four kilometres of AC and fibre optic cables will be laid from the terminal at Kårstø to the converter at Haugsneset.

“We recently delivered our first conversion platform for wind energy to Germany and we previously had major conversion work on the Troll platform. For us, this is therefore an important and natural continuation which consolidates our position in this field,” says Jan Skogseth, CEO of Aibel.

At Haugsneset, the alternating current will be converted to direct current before it passes through 200 kilometres of power cables to the Johan Sverdrup field. At the field centre, the direct current will be converted back into alternating current. This will supply the various installations in the field centre with power from shore. In this way, CO2 emissions will be significantly reduced.
