Worley will work on TwinWay

Worley has secured a role on the TwinWay demonstrator project in Norway. Today, Hexicon announced that it had partnered with Worley, for the project’s front-end engineering design (FEED), engineering procurement fabrication (EPF), and installation management.

After the FEED is completed, Worley will assume full responsibility for the project’s fabrication phase. This expected to commence in Autumn 2022.

“This is naturally an important milestone to prove the benefits of our technology and accelerate the journey towards commercialization”,
said Marcus Thor, CEO of Hexicon. “Worley is a well renowned tier one contractor in the renewable sector, and I’m thrilled that their deep competence and infrastructure will be engaged as TwinWind becomes a reality.”

TwinWay, a proof of concept installation, is intended to verify and commercialize Hexicon’s floating wind foundation technology at the deep-water MetCentre site, off the Norwegian coast. It is the first project in which Hexicon’s patented design will be deployed at full scale. So far, Hexicon has achieved a statement of feasibility and certification report from DNV.

Chris Cowland, Vice President Global Offshore Wind of Worley, said that the project would “provide crucial evidence of the specific and highly promising technology, but also why wind power in deep water areas will be an important part of the global transition to renewable energy.”
