On the morning of October 26, Navantia Puerto Real celebrated the official act of handing over to the client the HVDC module of the Johan Sverdrup Phase 2 project, which is a large oil field located in the North Sea about 140 kilometers west of Satavanger in Norway. This large off-shore project has been commissioned by the companies Aibel Norway and Equinor.
After 14 months of intense work to successfully complete and on date the construction of this electrical substation, the HVDC module built in Puerto Real left on October 27, bound for its destination aboard the Heavy Lift “Biglift Barentsz”. The trip is scheduled to last about a week.
The project has involved Navantia Puerto Real around 835,000 hours of work, employing an average of 375 people during the 14 months of work. In addition, it is necessary to highlight the fulfillment of the deadlines despite the inconveniences derived from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, which Navantia has faced and complying with the different milestones to customer satisfaction.
The successful completion of this contract places the Puerto Real de Navantia shipyard as an international benchmark in the Off-Shore business.
