Galloper substation platform award to HFG
Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) has been awarded from Petrofac an AFC contract for fabricating the substation platform for Galloper Wind Farm Limited (GWFL).
Heerema Hartlepool is fabricating the unmanned offshore substation platform. Project engineering and procurement are being undertaken by Petrofac as part of the GE Petrofac Consortium.
The Galloper Offshore Wind Farm is an extension to the Greater Gabbard Wind Farm, but is being developed as an entirely separate entity. In 2008, the Greater Gabbard topsides transformer platform was Heerema Hartlepool’s first EPC project in the offshore wind energy sector.
The Galloper substation platform will connect turbine generators to a single Offshore Substation Platform (OSP) by subsea array cables. The OSP will be linked to the onshore transition joint bay near Sizewell by two subsea export cables. The offshore site is located within the outer Thames Estuary, 27 kilometres off the Suffolk coast with water depths of 27 to 39 metres.
Sail away of the platform is scheduled early in 2017.
Rosetti Marino S.p.A. and Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) entered into a letter of intent on the 16th of November with the aim to sell to Rosetti Marino the HFG activities at the yard in Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands. Rosetti Marino and HFG have worked closely together and in good mutual cooperation to investigate the viability of this proposed sale.

Following a strategic review Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) intends to divest a significant part of its activities in the field of design and fabrication of complex steel constructions for the offshore market. HFG has been struggling for some time with insufficient project volume and marginal profitability. In addition, the risks associated with building topsides are high and clients are not prepared to pay for this risk.
