DEME Offshore has signed an agreement with Equinor to undertake a study examining potential floating concrete substructures for the planned Hywind Tampen wind farm in the North Sea off Norway.

The study is a part of the engineering works before the final investment decision.

The scope of the front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract is to mature and optimize the design and construction methodology for 11 concrete substructures including secondary steel outfitting, mooring arrangement and project executing strategy.

Hywind Tampen is expected to be the first offshore wind farm powering existing oil platforms. The wind farm will consist of 11, 8 MW turbines which will meet about 35% of the annual power demand of the Snorre and Gullfaks oil and gas platforms.

Bart De Poorter, general manager DEME Offshore, said: “At DEME Offshore we are confident that floating wind energy has the potential to play a key role in the future energy mix. With our vast track record in providing innovative solutions for the offshore energy market and our extensive EPCI experience in major offshore wind projects, we aim to be at the forefront of this emerging industry. The Hywind Tampen project is considered to be a milestone for the floating offshore wind industry and we are excited to be involved in this challenging project to further broaden our technological capabilities.”
