Semco Maritime to optimise electrical infrastructure for Danish duo

In: Windfarms
Semco Maritime has been chosen to develop and optimise the electrical infrastructure for European Energy A/S’s Omø Syd and Jammerland Bay nearshore wind farms in Denmark.

The wind farms are located southwest of Slagelse and Kalundborgm respectivel  and will have a combined generating capacity of 560 MW, which will equal powering more than 500,000 homes with green energy and will lead to an annual reduction of more than 750.000 tons of CO2.

The scope of the study comprises optimisation of the electrical infrastructure, hereunder electrical grid studies and evaluating several scenarios of how to bring the power from the wind turbines to the grid onshore. This includes assessment of the sub-sea cable layout and design as well as onshore/offshore substation topologies. Capital expenditure vs. operational expenditure will be assessed to ensure the overall total cost of ownership is as optimised as possible. The study will be delivered in close cooperation with European Energy to ensure that local requirements are met.

“We are very pleased that European Energy A/S has chosen Semco Maritime for this study and we are proud that our services can play a part in the maturation of this project. We hope to see this project come to life, serving as a critical contribution to the green transition of our society”, says Tommy Flindt, Director of Engineering & Technology, Offshore Wind, Semco Maritime.

“We have selected Semco Maritime as we recognize their capabilities within offshore wind and we think they are the right partner to help mature this project. We look forward to seeing the completion of our nearshore projects and are pleased to have Semco Maritime on the team”, says Knud Erik Andersen, CEO, European Energy A/S. The engineering study was kicked off July 2020 and will be finalised by October 2020 by the study team located in Denmark.
