Drydocks World, Petrofac, Tennet to build Hvac offshore topside
Located in North Sea’s Hollandse Kust Zuid, the construction of the 3,500-tonne topside will be completed in 2021
Dubai-based oil and gas, marine, and renewable energy company Drydocks World will build Hollandse Kust Zuid Alpha, a high-voltage alternating current heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) transformer station topside, alongside London Stock Exchange-listed oil and gas firm Petorfac and Arnhem-based transmission system operator Tennet, with construction work on the project to complete in 2021.
According to state-held news agency, Wam, the Hvac platform will be a part of a wind farm located in North Sea’s Hollandse Kust Zuid grid connection in the Netherlands. The topside, weighing approximately 3,500 tonnes, will have a connection capacity of 700MW.
As part of the project, Drydocks World will carry out the Hvac engineering, procurement, and construction for the topside, in addition to production engineering, mechanical completion, pre-commissioning, commissioning assistance, load-out, and sea fastening services.
Chief executive officer and manging director of DP World's maritime services division, Capt Rado Antolovic, said: "Drydocks World is well-versed in the evolving technologies of the offshore industry to develop this segment."
