Petrofac completes offshore wind project in German North Sea

BorWin3 will convert and transmit energy to power more than a million German households.
BorWin3 will convert and transmit energy to power more than a million German households.

Petrofac has hailed the start of power generation from a major offshore wind project in Germany.

The 900 mega-watt BorWin3 platform has started the process of converting power from offshore windfarms and transmitting it to the country’s national grid about 100 miles away.

It will soon supply more than a million German households with clean electricity from wind power.

Petrofac, in partnership with Siemens, were awarded the contract in 2014 by German-Dutch transmission grid operator TenneT for engineering, procurement, construction, transport and offshore installation of the platform.

The jacket foundation was installed in May 2018, with the platform topside following in October after a mammoth sea journey from Dubai.

George Salibi, chief operating officer of Engineering and Construction at Petrofac, said: “We are delighted to have reached this key milestone with BorWin3 ready for action.

“The additional grid connection being put into operation is a significant contribution to the energy transition in Germany and a further demonstration of Petrofac’s expansion into adjacent sectors, including renewable energy.”
