Petrofac has entered into a Preferred Supplier Agreement with SSE Renewables to design, supply and install the HVAC onshore and offshore substations for the Seagreen wind farm project in Scotland.
Petrofac has commenced early work on the project. Subject to a final investment decision expected in the coming months, its full scope will include, on a lump-sum basis, the engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation, offshore installation and commissioning of the offshore substation platform, including the topside, jacket, and piles.
The onshore substation EPC scope includes all civil work and major equipment.
John Hill, Seagreen Project Director, said: “We are pleased to welcome the expertise of Petrofac to the Seagreen Project. With their experience across engineering, procurement, construction and installation in this sector we have secured a high level of project certainty in delivering this key element of the works.”
Located 27 kilometres off the coast of Angus, the Seagreen project comprises the Seagreen Alpha and Bravo offshore wind farms. Scheduled to be operational in 2024, Seagreen Alpha and Bravo will form the largest wind farm in Scotland with their combined capacity of 1,075MW.
Seagreen is one of the projects that won Contracts for Difference (CfD) in the UK’s third allocation round in September. Seagreen Phase 1 within the zone secured a 15-year contract for 454MW at a strike price of GBP 41.61/MWh in auction delivery year 2024/25.
