Statoil has awarded Lloyd's Register Energy’s consulting business a contract to perform a risk and emergency preparedness analysis for the Hywind Scotland pilot park project. The Norwegian international energy company plans to build the first floating wind farm off the Scottish coast.
The park will be located near Buchan Deep, approximately 25-30 kilometers off the coast of Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, UK. Lloyd’s Register will identify and characterise all risks at both facility and area levels, and quantify the risk level for people and assets. Further to that, an emergency preparedness analysis will determine the response capabilities necessary. Hywind Scotland is a 30MW pilot project which will consist of five, 6MW floating turbines operating in waters exceeding 100 metres of depth.
