Keppel Signs Long-Term Offshore Substation Deal with Ørsted

Keppel FELS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Keppel Offshore & Marine, has signed a global framework agreement with Ørsted to potentially undertake future offshore substation (OSS) projects.

The agreement follows Keppel Offshore & Marine’s completion of its first project for Ørsted in Singapore in September, when the company finished construction of two offshore substations for Taiwan’s Greater Changhua 1 & 2a offshore wind farms. The topsides set sail from Singapore to the project site offshore Taiwan the following month.

Along with the now delivered two OSS for Ørsted’s offshore wind farms in the Taiwan Strait, Keppel Offshore & Marine is also building an offshore HVDC converter station for TenneT for offshore wind farms in the German sector of the North Sea.

The company recently said that it had also secured a contract to build two OSS for a renewable energy company, not disclosing any details about this new project.
