Worley has partnered with Hexicon to deliver the ground-breaking TwinWay project in Norway.

Worley will deliver the FEED, engineering procurement fabrication (EPF) and installation management of the TwinWay demonstrator project. Once we complete the FEED, we’ll assume full responsibility for the project specific engineering, planning and fabrication phase, including the management of the installation. Rosenberg Worley, our Norwegian fabrication yard, will complete the fabrication.

TwinWind is a floating foundation technology, which hosts two wind turbines and weathervanes around a single mooring point. This means more turbines can be deployed per sea area increasing the energy yield and reducing the environmental impact. This is the first project where Hexicon’s patented design will be deployed at full scale.

The project is situated at METCentre’s deep-water test site off the coast of Norway. And will provide proof of concept to verify and commercialize Hexicon’s foundation technology for floating wind. During the initial phase of the project, Hexicon has achieved a statement of feasibility and certification report by DNV GL.

“After years of numerical and physical model testing, we are now putting the final pieces in place to deploy the full-scale version of our patented design. This is naturally an important milestone to prove the benefits of our technology and accelerate the journey towards commercialization. Worley is a well renowned tier one contractor in the renewable sector, and I’m thrilled that their deep competence and infrastructure will be engaged as TwinWind becomes a reality,” said Marcus Thor, CEO, Hexicon.

“We’re excited to be part of the TwinWay project. The learnings and collaboration from this project will not only provide crucial evidence of the specific and highly promising technology, but also demonstrate why wind power in deep water areas will be an important part of the global transition to renewable energy,” said Chris Cowland, Vice President Global Offshore Wind of Worley.
