Scana Offshore to moor Hywind Tampen floating wind farm

0

Incus-owned Scana Offshore has secured a contract from Kvaerner to supply mooring equipment for Hywind Tampen, Equinor’s new floating wind farm.

The contract is Scana Offshore’s first hardware contract in the floating wind power market.

The delivery from Scana Offshore consists of 33 hull brackets, which are used to attach anchoring lines to the hulls on the 11 offshore wind turbines that make up the Hywind Tampen wind farm.

The company will also provide remotely operated vehicle (ROV) tools for possible replacement of the anchor lines.

“We have a long track record of deliveries to the oil, gas and aquaculture market. Now we are looking forward to delivering mooring equipment to floating wind power as well – a market with great potential. In order to get into offshore wind and aquaculture, we have developed new and cost-reducing technology. The Hywind Tampen contract represents a breakthrough for this technology and provides feedback that Scana Offshore’s focus on continuous product development is the right way to go.”

Torkjell Lisland, managing director of Scana Offshore.

“This is a market we have worked hard to get into, and the contract with a world leader such as Kvaerner represents both an important milestone and a great feather in the hat for our commitment to supply anchoring to floating wind turbines. The breakthrough gives us another segment to grow in, and we see offshore wind as one of the most exciting areas for further growth over the next few years. We are now active in several segments, which gives us a good spread in several industries. We have dared to invest, and are now reaping the benefits of this.”

Styrk Bekkenes, CEO of Incus Investor.

For Scana Offshore, the Hywind Tampen project will start immediately, and the anchoring equipment will be delivered to Kvaerner in the spring of 2021.
