These days, large-scale offshore wind farms are trending up in size as well as in distance from the connection point onshore and HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) is increasingly becoming the technically and economically most advantageous power transmission method.
Semco Maritime’s historic market footprint in offshore wind is focused on HVAC-based (High Voltage Alternating Current) offshore substations providing services from engineering/feasibility studies to EPC services (engineering-procurement-construction) as well as offshore service and maintenance.
Now, leveraging 20 years of offshore HVAC experience, Semco Maritime is opening a business line that will focus on providing engineering studies, EPC services and offshore service and maintenance to the growing HVDC offshore transmission market.
“We have participated in a few HVDC projects already over the past years and have found a close match to our existing team capabilities and strengths, so we look forward to making a difference for these large offshore transmission projects with our safe, reliable, sustainable and cost-efficient solutions”, says Tommy Flindt, Director of Engineering & Technology in Semco Maritime’s Renewables Division.
Semco Maritime is investing in a dedicated team to ensure this mission has the right focus and attention and this will be fronted by Marcel Konietzko, Senior HVDC Technical Manager. “We will be engaging with all the stakeholders in the offshore HVDC market such as the owners, fabrication yards, engineering firms, technology providers and will seek to integrate where our team can make a difference. We already made a huge difference for HVAC offshore projects, now we aspire to do the same for HVDC”, says Marcel.
