Oliver Twinsafe are to supply a range of Modular and Monoflange double block and bleed valves to the Hornsea 3 Wind Farm project located in the UK sector of the North Sea. Hornsea 3 has two platforms, link 1 and link 2. These are unmanned and operated from shore with access to carry out maintenance done by vessel or helicopter.
These High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) offshore converter platforms have a combined capacity to produce 2.852 GW, enough to power the average daily needs of over 3 million UK homes. This makes it the single largest offshore wind project in the world.
Manufactured from 316 Stainless Steel, Super Duplex, and Titanium materials, valves are to be used in cooling systems and firewater applications. Regional Manager for Scotland and Scandinavia, Colin Wood, says, “We’re extremely proud as a business to supply valves for operation on large-scale green energy projects, and it’s particularly exciting to be working with a UK-based green project, such as Hornsea 3.”
We’re committed to supporting a Net Zero Emission future, and have recently launched a range of zero seat leakage valves for hydrogen applications. Our investment in designing new and innovative valve technologies is having an enormous impact and is hugely significant even a game changer!”
