Global Energy Group has completed the fabrication of two Towheads, complete with Equipment Interface Support Frames and Buoyancy Tank Interface Frames, from the Port of Nigg on behalf of Subsea7, for the Aker BP Valhall PWP—Fenris field in the southern North Sea.

The 66-ton Towheads, which are 15 m long and 6 m wide, were manufactured in the Port of Nigg’s 17,000 m2 fabrication facility, before having final painting and coatings completed, ahead of their departure from the site by road.

Dave MacKay, General Manager of Global Energy Group Fabrication, said:

"We are happy to have executed this project for our valued client Subsea7. The Towheads and associated subsea assets have been fabricated on time and within budget while maintaining our stringent focus on health & safety.

“It’s pleasing to see the growing number of fabrication projects being secured and completed by GEG, which are actively supporting the UK’s energy security ambitions. Our renowned fabrication expertise, commitment to safety and quality, as well as our leading facilities are playing a pivotal role in winning this work.”

GEG continues to be at the forefront of the national energy transition supporting the UK’s net zero and energy security targets while maximizing opportunities arising from the UK offshore energy industry. The group has invested over £120 m in the redevelopment and expansion of its infrastructure sites, resulting in the deployment of over 2.6 GW of offshore wind assets, and establishing itself as the UK's leading offshore renewables partner of choice.
