The grid operator TenneT has awarded a major contract to an Aibel/Keppel FELS consortium for the supply of the HVDC platform and onshore converter station of the offshore grid connection project DolWin5.

ABB will supply the complete HVDC electrical power system.

Aibel’s scope within the consortium is the engineering and procurement and Keppel FELS’s yard in Singapore will be constructing the converter platform. After transportation from Singapore to Haugesund, Aibel will install ABB’s HVDC conversion equipment, including commissioning, transport and installation of the complete converter platform offshore.

“With this award, we maintain our position as a preferred supplier in the offshore wind segment and strengthen our position in the ongoing energy industry transformation”, says President & CEO of Aibel, Mads Andersen. “Keppel and Aibel have cooperated on a project basis for several years, and we are pleased to jointly land this contract. Equally important is having the opportunity to continue our collaboration with ABB, a valued partnership we have had for almost ten years. It is exciting to see that we now succeed with Aibel’s new platform concept incorporating the latest generation of ABB’s equipment”.
