NKT said on Thursday that the company would connect the Edvard Grieg platform to the Johan Sverdrup field center in the North Sea with a 24-kilometer 132 kV high-voltage power cable.

The power cable solution will finalize the Utsira High Power Hub Project to power several oil and gas fields with renewable power from shore.

According to the company, the connection of the two installations enables Lundin to benefit from the already planned power link in conjunction with Phase 2 of the Johan Sverdrup development.

The link connecting Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 to the onshore power grid is currently under development by NKT. Also, the company is working on connecting Johan Sverdrup 2 and Gina Krog oil and gas platforms on behalf of Equinor.

The high-voltage power cable project connecting Edvard Grieg to Johan Sverdrup 2 is expected to be commissioned in 2022.

The project will complete the Utsira High Power Hub Project aiming to electrify the oil and gas fields Johan Sverdrup, Gina Krog, Ivar Aasen, and Edvard Grieg located on Utsira High in the North Sea.

Andreas Berthou, EVP and head of HV Solutions in NKT, said: “We are proud to support the growing industry focus on reducing the CO2 emissions having a key differentiator in our ability to provide the most energy efficient offshore installation driven by the capabilities of our cable-laying vessel NKT Victoria.”
