The scope of the NOK 600-million ($74-million) contract includes engineering, procurement, construction site work, building of the station, and installation of converter equipment; and trenching and laying of two sets of 300-kV alternating-current cables from Kårstø to Haugsneset for both phases of the field development.
Access roads will have to be built and a new construction site prepared for the converter stations for both Phase 1 and Phase 2. ABB Norge will supply the HV DC converter equipment, and will also make and lay two 200-km (124-mi) HV cables between Haugsneset and the field location.
Aibel will perform engineering for the station in Oslo, with sub-supplier Veidekke undertaking construction site work. Earlier, Aibel landed the contract for construction of the deck for Johan Sverdrup’s drilling platform.
Johan Sverdrup Phase 1 will also prepare for a land-based power solution for a full development of this and other fields on the Utsira High by 2022.
