Aibel has contracted Heerema Marine Contractors to transport and install two offshore converter stations (OCS) for the Hornsea 3 offshore wind farm.
The Hornsea 3 offshore wind farm will be capable of generating up to 2,852 GW of energy. The contract was awarded following the Hornsea 3 wind farm developer Ørsted being allocated a Contract for Difference on July 7, 2022. The work will include transporting and installing the two OCS jackets, eight skirt piles, and the two OCS topsides. Heerema will perform offshore lifting of the jackets onto the seabed before installing the piles to ensure fixation to the seabed. After executing the jacket installation, the OCS will be completed by installing the topsides onto the jackets.
