If Hywind Tampen gets the green light, Gulen Industrial Harbour in Sogn og Fjordane county will be the place for the assembly of the floating wind turbines before they are transported to the field in the North Sea. Hywind Tampen could become the world’s first project to use wind turbines for electrification of oil and gas installations.

Equinor on behalf of the partners, have awarded a contract to Wergeland Base in Gulen Industrial Harbour in Sogn og Fjordane based on assessments of i.a. topographic suitability, safety as well as technical and commercial conditions,” says Equinor’s project director Olav-Bernt Haga.

The floating wind turbines will be towed to the field where they will be anchored, connected and put into operation. With a combined capacity of 88 MW, the 8 MW turbines will meet around 35 % of the annual power demand of the five platforms.

“This is a challenging project requiring optimal technical solutions and further cost reductions before the partners can make an investment decision” says Haga. The licensees are currently maturing the project towards any investment decision to be made this year.
