Areva and Keppel Verolme get Wetfeet deal

28 April 2010

AREVA’s Transmission and Distribution division and Dutch consortium partner Keppel Verolme B.V. have secured a €62 million order for an offshore high voltage substation project with Wetfeet Offshore Windenergy GmbH (Wetfeet Offshore), a German wind energy project development company and AREVA T&D partner.

This turnkey project involves the supply and installation of a self-floating, self-installing 155/33 kV OHVS to connect Wetfeet Offshore’s ‘Global Tech 1’ 400 MW offshore wind farm, located in the German Exclusive Economic Zone in the North Sea, to the offshore HVDC grid.

The OHVS platform will serve as a logistics service base during installation and operation of the offshore wind farm, and will be equipped with boat landings, a helicopter deck and accommodations for up to 37 people.

AREVA T&D’s German-based subsidiary, AREVA Energietechnik GmbH, will carry out operations in conjunction with Dutch shipyard company Keppel Verolme B.V., an expert in offshore constructions in the Oil & Gas industry.

“This contract with Wetfeet Offshore is the first AREVA Offshore Platform project,” said Michel Augonnet, AREVA T&D executive vice president, systems. “Our state-of-the-art solutions offer customers the highest level of reliability and safety standards, and position us as an excellent partner for Wetfeet Offshore’s future projects.”
