The objectives of the front-end engineering and design (FEED) assignment are to further mature the design of the concrete substructures, to identify appropriate construction site(s), and to develop a plan for construction, method and cost for production of 11 floating concrete substructures.   

“Another important part of the FEED contract is to establish an improvement agenda that targets cost and schedule drivers with the purpose of establishing the safest and most cost-efficient concept for project execution. This is a good match for the continuous cost and schedule improvement programmes Kvaerner has implemented over the past 4-5 years”, says Peder Christian Melleby, senior vice president Renewables in Kvaerner.

“During the FEED period we will develop the smartest possible solution to bring down the serial production cost and execution time for 11 concrete units, without compromising with Kvaerner’s renowned ability to deliver predictably. Our ambition is to present an attractive concept and delivery model to Equinor and its partners, and that they choose to realise the Hywind Tampen project with Kvaerner’s solution”, says Melleby.

Equinor plans on powering their gas and oil fields with wind power from floating turbines.
