Worley has been awarded a contract by Keppel Offshore & Marine to provide engineering services for the construction of two offshore substation platforms (OSS) for a wind farm project.
The Australian engineering firm will provide detailed design engineering services and procurement and fabrication support for the two OSS topsides modules.
The project is crucial to meet clean energy targets in the local areas and sets out to provide renewable energy to thousands of homes. It will also support investment for future operations and maintenance regimes.
Earlier this year, Worley completed topsides optimization studies to reduce the size and weight of the OSS modules to minimize expenditure during the fabrication and installation phases.
The project will benefit from a significant digital element. The second OSS will be a replication of the first by using digital replication and 3D model technology. It’s a more sustainable way of designing assets by saving on time and resources.
“Being part of a project that supports the energy transition through the development of new energy practices aligns with our purpose of delivering a more sustainable world,” said Rob Langford, Senior Director Offshore Wind US. “This contract adds to our portfolio of offshore substation projects and by working with Keppel, it defines that global supply chain collaboration is paving the way for the future of the energy industry.”
