Siemens and Petrofac as a consortium were contracted by DC Netz BorWin3 GmbH to design, build, and install a 18,000 tonne topside of the BorWin gamma High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC).

Construction of the platform involved approximately 13.5 million man-hours and used 10,500 tonnes of steel, more than the weight of the Eiffel Tower. Inside the platform is nearly 550 miles of cable.

The platform has been installed on its jacket foundation in the German sector of the North Sea, where will soon be used to supply green power to more than one million German households.

Petrofac has hired the JB 117 to deliver accommodation services for maximum of 150 POB Petrofac Personnel, catering and crane services.
