Iv-Offshore & Energy b.v. announced it has signed the early works contract with Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms Pte Ltd (SMOP) for the engineering of the Sofia high voltage direct current (HVDC) platform (10,000 T). Sofia Offshore Wind Farm will be one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world and when operational could provide almost 1.2 million UK homes with their annual electricity needs. Iv-Offshore & Energy is SMOP’s engineering subcontractor for the detailed design for both the topside and jacket of the Offshore Converter Platform. The contract also includes procurement of topside equipment. In the project, GE will be responsible for the High Voltage equipment on the platform.
Primaned Projectadvies B.V. has been assisting Iv-Offshore & Energy b.v. since the tender phase. This resulted in a level 3 time schedule, created together with Sembcorp Marine Offshore Platforms Pte Ltd (SMOP). During the start up phase of the early works, extensive cooperation between Iv-ONE and SMOP resulted in a more detailed time schedule. During the project, the time schedule will be used to analyse the progress and to keep track of the critical path of the entire project. For this, Earned Value Management will be applied.
