Wood to deliver modifications for wind-powered North Sea platforms
Wood has been awarded a new contract by Equinor to deliver modifications to two offshore installations in the Norwegian North Sea to connect electric power from floating wind turbines that form part of the Hywind Tampen development.

Equinor’s landmark project replaces energy generated by gas turbines with electricity from a floating wind park located between the Snorre and Gullfaks fields, reducing emissions by more than 200,000 tonnes per year.

As part of the three-year contract, Wood will provide the topside modifications necessary for the Snorre A and Gullfaks A platforms to integrate the Hywind floating wind park with existing systems powering the facilities. The scope of work also includes equipment installation on the floating wind turbines and upgrades to the onshore control room in Bergen which will remotely operate the wind farm.

Dave Stewart, CEO of Wood’s Asset Solutions business in Europe, Africa, Asia & Australia, comments: “The Snorre A and Gullfaks A facilities will be the first oil and gas platforms to be powered by a floating offshore wind farm. We are proud to support Equinor on what is a flagship project for the North Sea’s energy transition journey.

“Wood is fully committed to applying our experience gained from decades of working in the region’s oil and gas industry to reduce the carbon intensity of offshore operations by modifying existing infrastructure.

“This contract maintains our position as a leading provider of modifications and engineering services in Norway, demonstrating our global track record not only in offshore operations, but in fixed and floating wind energy solutions.”
