Linxon is supporting Petrofac to deliver the turnkey onshore substation and supply, install and commission the HVAC equipment for the offshore substation of the 1075MW Seagreen offshore wind farm project.
The Linxon EPC scope includes the design, supply and construction of all onshore civil works and the HVAC electrical system equipment at both the onshore Tealing substation site and within the offshore substation platform.
The significant onshore civil works will be undertaken by a Scottish-based civil engineering contractor as part of Linxon’s commitment to support the local Scottish supply chain. The final electrical system includes significant reactive compensation equipment to manage power quality and UK power network load balancing challenges as part of a full system solution.
Seagreen 1, a joint venture between SSE Renewables and Total, recently reached final investment decision, helping to kick start Scotland’s green recovery from the coronavirus. When complete, Seagreen 1 will be Scotland’s largest offshore wind farm, able to provide around 1 million homes with renewable electricity each year. The wind farm site is situated over 27 km off the Angus coast and will consist of 114 10MW Mitsubishi Vestas Offshore Wind Farm turbines.
