ADNOC and ADPower have issued a joint tender to develop and function the MENA area’s first HVDC subsea transmission system.
The system will join ADNOC’s offshore manufacturing services to ADPower’s onshore electrical energy grid.
The mission ought to because of this cut back the carbon footprint of ADNOC’s offshore services by as much as 30 per cent.
The transmission system will comprise two unbiased subsea HVDC transmission hyperlinks and converter stations, operated by ADPower’s TRANSCO unit.
It will present a complete put in capability of three,200 megawatts.
It additionally gives energy provide value optimization potential for ADNOC’s offshore services.
Namely, it can substitute the present offshore localized gasoline turbine mills with environmentally sustainable sources of vitality, together with renewable and nuclear energy.
The mission additional gives potential for ADNOC to extra successfully make the most of its wealthy gasoline, at the moment used to energy the offshore services.
ADNOC and ADPower are additionally trying to crew up with worldwide firms which have the expertise in such infrastructure initiatives.
The mission funding will undergo a particular goal car collectively owned by ADNOC (30 per cent stake), ADPower (30 per cent stake) and the chosen builders and traders (40 per cent stake).
The mission execution is on a construct, personal, function and switch (BOOT) foundation.
The profitable bidders, alongside ADNOC and ADPower, will develop and function the transmission system.
However, the complete mission ought to return to ADNOC on the finish of the transmission settlement.
Commercial operation ought to begin in 2025, in line with ADNOC.
The publish ADNOC and ADPower crew up on subsea HVDC hyperlinks appeared first on Offshore Energy.
