Equinor Receives Consent to Use Hywind Tampen

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/3/2022, Location: Europe

Equinor has been granted permission to use the Hywind Tampen offshore wind farm by the Petroleum Safety Authority of Norway (PSA). This permission includes the use of the Hywind Tampen facilities, as well as improvements to the Gullfaks and Snorre fields, as well as the Valemon (Sandsli) control centre for Gullfaks and Snorre power supplies.

The Hywind Tampen wind farm will generate electricity for these two North Sea fields, and is the first large wind power development on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS).

New responsibility
The PSA was delegated supervisory authority for offshore renewable energy production in 2020. Its responsibilities in this area include developing dedicated HSE regulations for offshore wind power and supervising such facilities.

Since Hywind Tampen is closely integrated with petroleum operations on the NCS, the PSA has applied the existing petroleum regulations in its consideration of this development.
