SPT Offshore Wins Dudgeon OWF Job

SPT Offshore has been awarded the design, fabrication and installation of the suction pile foundation for Statoil Siemens Dudgeon Transformer Substation to support Sembmarine SLP being the main fabricator for this substation.

Sembmarine SLP has been awarded a contract to design and build the offshore substation platform by Siemens Transmission & Distribution Limited, who was awarded the contract for the Electrical System Infrastructure.

According to SPT, the 4-leg jacket will support the topsides weighing approx. 1,850 ton.

“We are extremely pleased with this first suction pile founded substation in UK waters,” says Mark Riemers MD of SPT Offshore. “We trust this will create more business for the silently and swiftly installed suction pile foundations in the UK, after having installed several suction pile foundations for oil & gas platforms and subsea structures in the UK North Sea and East Irish Sea.”

The Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm will be located in water which is between 18-25m deep on a 35 km² site located 32 km off the coast of the seaside town of Cromer in North Norfolk. The electricity which it generates will be brought to shore, via a seabed cable, at Weybourne Hope, some 5 km west of the town of Sheringham on the North Norfolk coast. From there an underground cable will be laid to carry this electricity to Necton, near Swaffham in the Breckland district of Norfolk where a purpose build substation will enable the electricity to be transmitted into the National Grid.
