Petrofac has awarded the Dubai-based Eversendai Offshore with two substantial contracts for the offshore wind-related projects in the Netherlands and in Scotland, UK.
Eversendai Offshore, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Malaysia’s Eversendai Corporation Berhad, will fabricate and construct a jacket foundation and the accompanying piles for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) Beta substation platform to be installed in the Dutch North Sea.
The second project is to fabricate and construct an offshore wind substation platform topside, the jacket foundation, and the piles for an offshore wind farm in Scotland.
The projects will be executed in Eversendai’s fabrication yard in RAK Maritime City, Ras Al Khaimah, the United Arab Emirates. The value of the contracts is RM 186 million (around EUR 36.7 million).
The scope of work for the UK project includes engineering, fabrication, construction, sea- fastening, and loadout of the offshore substation platform topside, the jacket, and the piles including HVAC, architectural and mechanical completion, as well as pre-commissioning of the substation platform topside.
This offshore wind substation will be the highest capacity in the world, Eversendai said. As reported earlier, Petrofac secured a preferred supplier status for the onshore and offshore substations for the 1,075 MW Seagreen wind farm project. This is currently Petrofac’s only offshore wind project in Scotland.
Eversendai Offshore’s scope of work for Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) Beta project includes engineering, fabrication, construction, sea-fastening, and loadout of the jacket and the piles. Petrofac and Eversendai previously cooperated on a similar project for the HKZ Alpha substation.
Narish Nathan, Chief Executive Officer at Eversendai Offshore, said: “This is a significant achievement that marks our continued expansion in the offshore wind renewable energy sector; a market we recognise is vital for the world’s future clean energy needs. We have been involved in the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) Alpha project and we are delighted to continue our association with Petrofac building a stronger relationship for the future.”
Eversendai envisages the offshore wind renewable energy projects to be a substantial contributor to the Group’s revenue and profits moving forward.
“This diversification into the offshore wind renewable energy sector continues to promote our diversification efforts of growing our business into industries that leverages on our fabrication facilities and core expertise in engineering, fabrication and construction,” Narish said.
