The Hywind Tampen control room is co-located with the OCR for Valemon, Equinor’s unmanned platform with separation facilities for gas, condensate and water. Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Industry approved Equinor’s plans for development and operation of the Hywind Tampen project in April. Lloyd’s Register has been contracted for Human-Machine Interface (HMI) engineering services for the control room from which the Hywind Tampen floating wind farm will be remotely operated. The project is scheduled to come online in late 2022. Wood’s scope includes topside modifications necessary for the Snorre A and Gullfaks A platforms to integrate the Hywind Tampen with existing systems powering the facilities, equipment installation on the floating wind turbines, and upgrades to the OCR in Bergen. Hywind Tampen will comprise eleven Siemens Gamesa SG 8.0-167 DD wind turbines, installed some 140 kilometres off Norwegian coast, in water depths ranging from 260 to 300 between the Snorre and Gullfaks oil and gas platforms. The company will provide consultancy design services for integration into the onshore control room (OCR) for the Hywind Tampen floating wind farm in Norway, as well as human factor analysis for the new OCR and existing OCRs for four platforms. “The work we are undertaking, providing design consultancy for the existing OCR and human factor analysis, will help support Equinor’s wider decarbonisation agenda. By developing unmanned solutions for power generation, the industry can start to make some real cost savings”, said Tristan Chapman, SVP Clean Energy and Innovation at Lloyd’s Register. The almost EUR 500 million project is the first to power oil & gas platforms by a floating wind farm. The services Lloyd’s Register will provide for Hywind Tampen control room are part of an integrated scope Equinor awarded to Wood.
