Norwegian energy services firm Aibel has announced a contract for more than £200 million for the supply of converter platforms at Equinor and SSE’s Dogger Banks wind project.

Aibel will deliver two platforms for the Creyke Beck A and Creyke Beck B projects, with a further option for a third platform for the Teesside A project at the same development.

Technology firm ABB will provide the project’s power transmission system, which is also understood to be a amount to a several million pound agreement.

Dogger Bank, a 50:50 joint venture between Equinor and SSE Renewables, is planned 80 miles off the Yorkshire coast.

It could generate enough energy to power the equivalent of 4.5 million homes in the UK.

Executive vice president for field development and Offshore wind for Aibel, Nils Arne Hatleskog, said: “Our skilled engineers have for several years worked closely with our partner ABB, and together they have successfully developed integrated solutions that we proudly see win in a very competitive environment.

“We have also established an efficient supply chain for our deliveries, and this award confirms our competitiveness.”

Aibel said the platform topside for the Creyke Beck A will be ready for sail away to Dogger Bank in Q1 of 2023, and final completion at the field in Q3 of 2023.

The delivery of Creyke Beck B is scheduled for Q3 of 2024.

SSE Renewables recently opened the 84-turbine Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm in the Outer Moray Firth.

It is able to power up to 450,000 homes in the UK.

Paul Cooley, director of capital projects at SSE Renewables, said: “Dogger Bank is truly a world-leading project, pushing new boundaries in the provision of ground-breaking technology to deliver low-carbon energy generation to help achieve the UK’s net zero ambition by 2050.

“The appointment of Aibel and ABB as project partners will ensure that the latest grid solution technology is deployed to support our successful project delivery.”
