LOC Wins Contract for Hornsea Two Marine Warranty Services
Ørsted has contracted LOC Group to carry out Marine Warranty Surveyor (MWS) services for the Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm in the UK.
Under the 18-month agreement, LOC London and LOC Singapore will execute all MWS work on the project’s substations.
“Hornsea Two is a game-changing renewable energy project in terms of both scale and value. Our suppliers are a pivotal part of the project team and play an important role in realizing the project,” said Peter Clusky, Senior Supply Chain Development Manager at Ørsted.
“We continue to deliver on our commitment to support the development of a competitive UK supply chain that can benefit from the many opportunities in Ørsted’s global portfolio of projects in the UK and around the world.”
Sembcorp Marine is in charge of fabricating the offshore substation and the Reactive Compensation Station (RCS) for Hornsea Project Two at its yard facilities in Singapore, as part of a contract signed in May 2018.
Semco Maritime will develop the electrical and mechanical basic engineering design of the structures.
The 1.4GW Hornsea Project Two will feature 165 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines installed some 89km from the Yorkshire coast. It will become the world’s biggest offshore wind farm when operational in 2022.
