Posted on May 10, 2023

Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms (SMOP) has secured a contract worth more than S$500m (US$377m) to provide substations for Equinor and BP’s US offshore projects Empire Wind 1 and 2.

The scope of the project involves the engineering, procurement, construction, offshore hook-up and commissioning of two offshore substation platforms for the two wind farms, located about 20 miles south of Long Island.

Following completion, the Empire Wind 1 and 2 offshore substation platforms will be operated by Equinor.

Construction works on the 810MW Empire Wind 1 platform and the 1260MW Empire Wind 2 platform are expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2023 and second half of 2024 respectively at the Singapore and Indonesia yards belonging to Seatrium, the parent Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms.

This contract award follows the successful completion of the FEED (Front-End Engineering and Design) contract which was secured by SMOP in 2022.

The group is also constructing a Wind Turbine Installation Vessel for deployment at the Empire Wind Farms based on a breakthrough design jointly developed with the customer Maersk Supply Service.

Executive Vice-president and Head of SMOP Samuel Wong, said: “We would like to thank Empire Wind for their confidence in awarding us the turnkey construction of the two OSS Platforms for the Empire Wind 1 and 2 Wind Farms.

“Leveraging the combined capabilities and synergies of our Group, we are committed to working in close partnership with the Empire Wind team to achieve high standards of safety, quality, sustainability and performance, as well as execution excellence and the timely delivery of both OSS platforms.”
