Dutch construction company HSM Offshore Energy has secured a contract for the construction of a production platform at N05-A gas field in the North Sea.
HSM will build the N05-A gas production platform to run entirely on renewable energy supplied by the nearby Riffgat Offshore Wind Farm, to reduce its carbon emissions.
HSM, in its statement, said: “This project makes an active contribution to the energy transition and to achieving the EU goals of the Climate Agreement, in a safe and responsible manner. Natural gas production facilities linked to Offshore Wind Farms is a sustainable solution in the energy mix.
“Locally produced natural gas has a 30% lower carbon footprint than imported natural gas, it increases the security of local supply of energy and contributes to the local economy.
“HSM is fully committed to the energy transition via its EPCI activities in Offshore Wind and Hydrogen, however, the transition to 100% renewable energy takes time and therefore we are proud to support ONE-Dyas with our Oil & Gas heritage.”
Earlier this year, ONE-Dyas secured definitive permits from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate for the development of the N05-A gas field.
