Sif Holding, a manufacturer of steel tubulars which are used as foundation components for the offshore wind and offshore oil & gas markets, has been awarded a contract for the production of legs, bracings, pile sleeves and pin piles for the jacket of the BorWin gamma platform.

The project is being undertaken by Petrofac in consortium with Siemens for the German-Dutch transmission grid operator TenneT.

The jacket for the BorWin gamma platform will be built by Heerema Fabrication Group and will house a Siemens HVDC station that will convert the alternating current produced by the offshore wind turbines to direct current before transmitting it onshore to the German high voltage grid.

The total volume of the tubulars for the platform amounts to approximately 8.6 ktons and production is planned in the last quarter of 2016 and the first half year of 2017.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
