Norwegian engineering and construction company Kvaener chose Rubb AS’ storage solution on behalf of the Hywind Tampen project—the world’s first renewable power for offshore oil and gas.
The energy company behind the project, Equinor, explains:
“Hywind Tampen is an 88 MW floating wind power project intended to provide electricity for the Snorre and Gullfaks offshore field operations in the Norwegian North Sea. It will be the world’s first floating wind farm to power offshore oil and gas platforms.
“It will also be the world’s largest floating offshore wind farm and an essential step in industrialising solutions and reducing costs for future offshore wind power projects.”
The 15m span x 30m length x 5m sidewall FXF building is fully prepared for the task, with 50mm Thermohall® insulation, 7.5kW heating, electrics, and 250 lux lighting. Access is provided by a 6m x 5m door in the gable alongside a pedestrian door.
Located in Vikebygd, western Norway, the building will be rented with through Renthall, Rubb’s sister company and specialist in rental solutions.
Rubb AS is proud to be supporting such an important project for the future of offshore wind projects the world over.
