The global energy transition is accelerating, with the share of renewables, gas and new energy solutions growing in the energy mix. Demand for offshore wind is expected to grow significantly in the years ahead, with COVID-19 further increasing the energy transition by sharply reducing global oil demand.

Prioritizing sustainability

In line with Keppel’s Vision 2030 of putting sustainability at the heart of our strategy, Keppel Offshore & Marine is seizing opportunities in green developments and renewables such as offshore wind. As more offshore wind farms get commissioned, Keppel O&M is able to offer integrated solutions, including offshore substations, foundations, installation and support vessels to support the growth of this sector.

Supporting the offshore wind industry

In the last couple of years, Keppel O&M has secured projects to support the offshore wind industry. We are building one of the world’s largest offshore wind turbine installation vessels (WTIV) for the United States, as well as constructing offshore converter stations and substations for offshore wind farms in Germany for TenneT, and in Taiwan for Ørsted respectively.

For our contract with TenneT to build the Dolwin 5 converter stations, Keppel O&M formed a consortium with Norway’s Aibel AS to provide a winning solution. Over the years, Keppel has built a strong relationship with Norwegian companies in developing innovative solutions.To support global renewable energy needs, Keppel believes in teaming up with like-minded partners and vendors to provide comprehensive sustainable solutions that meet stringent cost, safety and quality demands.Its successful collaborations have been future-focussed with shared values and close communication.
