Reach Subsea Wins Equinor Contract in Offshore Wind Sector

Equinor has, on behalf of the UK offshore wind farm operations at Dudgeon Offshore Wind and Hywind, awarded Reach Subsea a frame agreement for survey and inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) services.

The frame agreement has a firm duration of 3 years, with extension options for 2 additional years, and will be serviced together with our co-operation partner MMT.

These Equinor operated wind farms are located 20-40 km off the UK coast, and can power some 430,000 UK homes. Taken together, the infrastructure encompasses 72 wind turbines deployed over a 75 square kilometers area, as well as 90 kilometers of 132kV offshore export cables and a network of 33kV array cables from each turbine to export substations.

The frame agreement is call-off based, which means that Equinor can award contracts for survey and IMR services for its UK offshore wind farms on an as needed basis.

In connection with the award of this frame agreement, Dudgeon Offshore Wind will make its first call-off for Survey services with a scope of approximately 20 days. The survey scope starts in August 2018 and will be executed with joint resources from Reach Subsea and MMT.

Reach CEO, Jostein Alendal, said: “Over the recent years we have together with our co-operation partner MMT increasingly focused on the renewables sector, as demonstrated by almost half of Reach Subsea resources being employed towards this sector in 2017. We are proud and pleased to further manifest our position in the fast growing offshore wind sector through this frame agreement with Equinor, which is of significant strategic importance and further improves visibility for our service offerings for the next 5 years. On a separate note, it is interesting to see how offshore technologies and capabilities developed in the oil & gas sector, can be exploited to realise the development and maintenance of green offshore energy projects. As such, we are committed to utilise our subsea capabilities to establish a position as a service partner to this fast growing offshore sector.”
