Worley to Design Revolution Wind Substations

Ørsted has awarded Worley with a contract to engineer and design two offshore wind topside substations for the 700MW Revolution Wind project off the Rhode Island coast, US.

The project started in March 2019, with the installation expected in 2022, Worley said.

“This project is directly aligned to our strategic priority of supporting our customers through the energy transition, as the world moves from traditional fossil power generation to renewable power generation,” said Eoghan Quinn, Global Wind Lead, Worley.

“This project award builds on a previous Orsted Framework Agreement win, further solidifying our strong and ongoing partnership with this customer and our presence in the US market.''

There is a strong focus by the customer on the utilization of Worley’s US-based resources for this project, the company said.

Revolution Wind has secured a total of 700MW offshore wind capacity, with the capacity awarded in Rhode Island and Connecticut, which Ørsted will build as one joint project. The wind farm is located some 15 kilometres south of the Rhode Island coast.

Revolution Wind is part of the Deepwater Wind portfolio which Ørsted acquired in October 2018.
