Singapore's Seatrium Secures Two Offshore Substation Platform Projects from Empire Wind

Seatrium Limited has secured a contract worth more than S$500 million for two offshore wind farm substations from Empire Offshore Wind LLC, a joint venture between Equinor and bp.

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

Singapore-headquartered Seatrium Limited (formerly Sembcorp Marine Ltd and renamed Seatrium Limited after its merger with Keppel Offshore & Marine Limited) provides innovative engineering solutions to the global offshore, marine and energy industries.

The scope of the new project involves the engineering, procurement, construction, offshore hook-up and commissioning of two Offshore Substation (OSS) Platforms for the Empire Wind 1 and 2 Offshore Wind Farms located about 20 miles south of Long Island, east of the Rockaways.

Following completion, the Empire Wind 1 and 2 OSS Platforms will be operated by Equinor.

The project will power more than one million homes in New York and is expected to be a major contributor in supporting the United States’ (U.S.) energy transition goals for a low-carbon future.

Construction works on the 810MW Empire Wind 1 Platform and the 1,260MW Empire Wind 2 Platform are expected to commence in 4Q2023 and 2H2024 respectively at Seatrium’s Singapore and Indonesia yards.

The Group is also constructing a Wind Turbine Installation Vessel (WTIV) for deployment at the Empire Wind Farms based on a breakthrough design jointly developed with the customer Maersk Supply Service. The next-generation WTIV is designed with capabilities to handle larger-capacity wind turbines.
