Lillgrund offshore wind farm is the first Swedish wind farm and consist of 48 wind turbines and a connecting substation. It is located approximately 7 kilometres from the Swedish coast, just south of the navigation passage of the Oresund bridge. The offshore substation enables 110 MW of clean energy to be sent ashore near the Swedish city Bunkeflo, corresponding to the energy consumption of 60.000 households.
Services provided by ISC
ISC’s role in the project was to prepare the concept (FEED), layout arrangement and the following detail design of the topside of the substation including auxiliary systems. Other than that, ISC handled the complete detailed engineering design in place, sea transport and installation and lift for the topside. Other services provided on the project was fire/safety, process, piping & mechanical, project follow-up and certification packages for topside for DNV-GL verification.
General description of the project
The substation is surrounded by a circular glass façade which equips the platform with a unique shape and visual impression. This was a client requirement as the offshore wind farm and substation are visible from both land and the Oresund Bridge. The Lillgrund topside is designed as a multi-story steel structure with five decks, including a cable deck for cable pulling and cable hang-off. The total weight of the topside structure is 670 tons.
