Gwynt-Y-Mor Offshore Substation concept
KCI performed the concept design for the self-installing substation with suction buckets for the Gwynt-Y-Mor Field for Siemens.
This field has a depth up to 28 meters for which a self-installing option was found to be a good fit. The proof of concept was delivered by the Oil & Gas projects at the P-Blocks in The Netherlands, where KCI installed this concept on five locations.
