Hitachi Energy and Petrofac support expanding offshore wind


United Kingdom – A partnership between Hitachi Energy and Petrofac will provide grid integration and related infrastructure to support the offshore wind market, which is expanding quickly.

In order to support the decarbonization of power systems and deliver clean energy, this collaboration builds on the complementary core technologies and offshore wind industry expertise of both companies. Both high-voltage alternating current (HVAC) and high-voltage direct current (HVDC) solutions are covered.


The efficient implementation of offshore wind projects will greatly benefit from the use of Hitachi Energy’s HVDC Light and modular HVAC grid technologies and solutions, as well as Petrofac’s engineering, procurement, construction, and installation capabilities for offshore platforms and offshore and onshore civil works. This will hasten the energy transition.

Dogger Bank, the largest offshore wind farm in the world off the coast of the UK, and four of the DolWin and BorWin HVDC hubs, which link numerous wind farms in the North Sea to the German power grid, are recent Hitachi Energy HVDC offshore wind projects.
