VALHALL POWER FROM SHORE

(PFS) HVDC LIGHT SYSTEM for BP NORGE (2008 – 2011)

CHALLENGE: to install and protect an HVDC Light offshore cable, taking green power from the Norwegian mainland to the oil field on the Norwegian continental shelf. This involved cable-floating, de-ballasting and rock emplacement techniques at several hundreds of metres. The project helped reduce the production of harmful gasses on-site and extended the lifetime of the infrastructure at Valhall.
