Glamox has been awarded a contract to supply LED lighting for the wind turbine foundations at Hywind Tampen. Aker Solutions is the Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractor for Hywind Tampen.
The project scope includes the supply of 11 floating concrete hulls that will support each wind turbine. As part of this scope of supply, Glamox will provide two different marine lighting products for the floating concrete hulls: FL60 LED floodlights and the MIR LED linear luminaires. The FL60 LED floodlights are a marine-certified lighting solution and is protected by a seawater-resistant, anodised aluminium housing. The MIR LED is a linear light fitting in 316L stainless steel that is certified for marine use.
Scheduled to be commissioned in late 2022, Hywind Tampen will be located 140km off the coast of Norway between the Snorre and Gullfaks oil and gas platforms, in water depths of up to 300 metres. A collaborative project between Siemens Gamesa and Norwegian company Equinor, the wind farm is equipped with 11 Siemens Gamesa direct drive wind turbines (total capacity 88MW) that will be capable of supplying around 35 per cent of the annual power demand of the two oil and gas platforms.
