Press Release

PETROFAC LIMITED
PETROFAC / SIEMENS CONSORTIUM AWARDED OFFSHORE WIND
CONTRACT IN NORTH SEA
Petrofac, the international service provider to the oil and gas industry, announces that in
consortium with Siemens it has been awarded a major contract from TenneT, the German-Dutch
transmission grid operator, for the BorWin3 offshore wind farm grid connection in the North Sea.
Petrofac will be responsible for the construction and offshore installation of the BorWin3
platform, which will house a Siemens high voltage direct current (HVDC) station that converts
the alternating current produced by the wind turbines to direct current before transmitting it
onshore to the German national grid. The HVDC station will be one of the biggest of its kind with
a transmission capacity of 900 megawatts (MW). The commencement of commercial operation of
Borwin3 is scheduled for 2019.
Marwan Chedid, Chief Executive of Petrofac’s Engineering, Construction, Operations and
Maintenance (ECOM) business, said: “Petrofac is involved in a number of projects with TenneT in
the German North Sea in which we are supporting the development and maintenance of offshore
transmission systems. We are delighted to be partnering with Siemens on this significant
contract, which deepens a relationship with an important customer and allows us to utilise our
vast experience of operating in the North Sea and delivering large scale, complex projects.”
Since January 2009 Petrofac has also been providing people, maintenance and support services
to the adjacent Borwin alpha platform, which is also operated by TenneT and houses a 400MW
HVDC platform. In 2010 Petrofac began supplying engineering, design, construction and project
management services to the DolWin1 HVDC platform and in 2012 established Petrofac
Deutschland GmbH, based in Hamburg.
