Imenco wins contract for world’s largest offshore wind farm

24th January 2018

Imenco Corrosion Technology AS have been awarded a contract to deliver equipment for corrosion protection of the world’s largest offshore wind farm; Hornsea Project One off the coast of UK.

Imenco Corrosion Technology AS (sister company of Imenco AS) have been awarded a contract to deliver equipment for corrosion protection (cathodic protection) of the world’s largest offshore wind farm – Hornsea Project One off the Yorkshire coast in UK. The contract has been awarded by Ørsted Wind Power A/S (previously DONG Energy Wind Power A/S) – the world’s largest developer and operator of offshore renewable energy. The wind farm consists of 174 wind turbines with a total capacity of 1,2 Gigawatt or electrical power for more than 1 million homes. The contract is for systems to connect sacrificial anodes to the turbine foundations and consist of Imenco’s Piranha® earthing connectors, cables and cable protectors.
Following Imenco’s first delivery of cathodic protection equipment for offshore wind projects in 2016, the company has been awarded contracts for delivery of similar solutions for 8 European offshore wind power projects in UK, Germany and Belgium.

Imenco has developed a series of solutions for connection of sacrificial anodes to various subsea structures. The solutions are all made to be installed without the use of divers and are all based on the same patented technology. In addition to offshore wind, the main application is found in lifetime extension of offshore oil and gas assets like pipelines, subsea production systems as well as floating and fixed platforms.

Commenting on the contract award, Geir Egil Østebøvik said: ”Corrosion protection of offshore wind farms has become a major business area for us. This contract with Ørsted, awarded at the end of 2017 is the latest of a string of awards in the same business area throughout 2017. The contracts form a firm foundation for a continued development of our technology and organization in an exciting and growing business area”.

Imenco is a supplier of equipment and engineering services to the offshore oil and gas sector, maritime industries, wind power and aquaculture. The company has its main office at Tysvaer (Norway) and manufacturing facilities at Tysvaer (Norway) and in Ningbo (China), as well as offices in Bergen (Norway), Lafayette (USA), Aberdeen (UK) and Singapore.
