Thor transformer platform


The project

The Thor Offshore Wind Farm in the Baltic Sea has a planned capacity of more than 1,000 MW. It will be Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm to date and is the first of three wind farms from the Energy Agreement (2018). As a subcontractor to HMS Offshore Energy, Iv is responsible for the design and integration of the topside and jacket of the offshore transformer platform, which delivers electricity from 72 wind turbines to the mainland.

The challenge

The Thor Offshore Wind Farm wind turbines each have a capacity of 15 megawatts. With such a large capacity, more equipment has to be integrated into the platform. This means playing with the available space down to the smallest detail to accommodate all the equipment and connect all the systems (the interfaces). This requires a unique approach and customised solutions, as each platform is specifically tailored to the needs and objectives of the client and the availability of suppliers.

The impact

The offshore wind farm will be located off the west coast of Denmark in the North Sea, about 22 kilometres from Thorsminde on the west coast of Jutland. When fully operational, the Thor Offshore Wind Farm can produce enough green electricity to supply one and a half million Danish households with green energy. This will significantly reduce dependence on fossil fuels and promote a future in green energy.
