Petrofac to support UK wind farm projects
Petrofac has secured a long-term Framework Agreement (FA) with Transmission Capital to provide engineering services across six of its OFTO (Offshore Transmission Owner) assets.
Under the Agreement, which is for five years, Petrofac has already been awarded two subsea engineering work scopes on key export cables connecting the Lincs and Robin Rigg offshore windfarms with their onshore transmission systems. The FA will enable Petrofac to support future engineering requirements across all of Transmission Capital’s OFTO export cables and substations in the Southern North Sea and Irish Sea.
The award builds upon Petrofac’s recent successes in the UK and German offshore wind markets, where it has been providing Engineering, Procurement and Construction support on major fixed and floating wind developments, and designing and engineering subsea cables.
Commenting, Usman Darr, Vice President Engineering Services for Petrofac Engineering and Production Services, West said: “This award reflects Petrofac’s growing position in the offshore wind market, where we continue to build our track record of delivering a strong, technically competent service for our clients.
“We very much look forward to having the opportunity to leverage our experience of challenging seabed conditions on behalf of Transmission Capital, through a range of multi-discipline engineering and operational support services.”
