Construction begun on Aibel wind platfom

The construction of Norwegian engineering company Aibel's first wind platform is underway at the yard in Dubai.

Aibel signed a contract with Drydocks World in Dubai in the beginning of 2012 to build the steel structure for its first wind platform.

The platform will be ready for sailaway from Dubai within approximately 2 years and will be outfitted in Haugesund before being towed out to the DolWin field in 2014. DolWin beta will be located in the DolWin wind farm cluster in the German sector of the North Sea.

The platform, which will host ABB’s converter station, will receive alternating current from the wind farms, and convert it to direct current which will then be sent ashore via sea cables.
The platform has been developed jointly by Aibel and ABB. The platform will stand in a sea depth of nearly 30 metres, will have a capacity of 900 MW and will be able take the production from three wind farms totalling 240 turbines.

The project is being managed from the Aibel offices at Haugesund in western Norway. At its busiest, approximately 200 Aibel employees will work on the wind platform.

Aibel AS is one of the largest oil service companies in Norway and is active in renewable energy. The company has 5,000 employees and operations including two world-class shipyards in five countries.
