DNV studies Tampen proposal

11 April 2019

DNV GL is to carry out a verification study of Equinor’s proposed Hywind Tampen floating offshore wind farm.

Hywind Tampen is expected to be the world’s first floating offshore wind farm providing energy for oil platforms. Equinor is planning to build the 88 MW project in the North Sea, 200 km west of Florø, Norway.

DNV GL’s independent verification study will ensure that the floating wind turbines comply with the applicable codes and standards for floating offshore wind and will focus on the review and verification of the design of the substructure, tower and mooring system as well as critical load conditions and global design parameters.

“Reducing the use of gas for power generation by using floating offshore wind turbines to supply power to oil platforms is a challenging and innovative project with far-reaching benefits to both the oil and gas and renewables industries, and to combating climate change,” said Prajeev Rasiah, Executive Vice President, Northern Europe, Middle East & Africa, DNV GL – Energy.

Hywind Tampen will consist of eleven 8 MW turbines and will be capable of meeting 35 per cent of the annual power demand of the Snorre and Gullfaks oil fields.
