Kongsberg Maritime will supply key positioning and monitoring equipment to Equinor’s Hywind Tampen floating wind farm as part of a contract with industrial solutions provider Wood PLC.
The 88-MW installation is the first of its type to be installed to supply renewable energy directly to offshore oil and gas platforms. It is intended to provide electricity for the Snorre and Gullfaks offshore field operations in the Norwegian North Sea.
It will also be the world’s largest floating offshore wind farm and an essential step in industrializing solutions and reducing costs for future offshore wind power projects.
