Eversendai’s waterfront fabrication yard in RAK Maritime City, Ras Al Khaimah in the UAE will implement the projects work
Petrofac has awarded two contracts, worth MYR186m ($42.7m), to Eversendai Offshore, a unit of Malaysian steel fabricator Eversendai, for offshore wind renewable energy projects.
Under the first contract, Eversendai Offshore will fabricate and construct an offshore wind substation platform topside, jacket & piles for an offshore wind farm in the UK.
The scope of work includes engineering, fabrication, construction, sea- fastening and loadout of the offshore substation platform topside, jacket and piles including HVAC, architectural and mechanical completion. It also includes pre-commissioning of the substation platform topside.
Expected to be the highest capacity in the world, the offshore wind substation will generate clean energy required to power approximately one million homes in the region.
The second contract calls for fabrication and construction of jacket & piles for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) Beta offshore wind substation platform for TenneT in the Netherlands.
The scope of work includes engineering, fabrication, construction, sea-fastening and loadout of the jacket & piles.
