Vissim Signs Long-Term Agreement with Equinor for Dogger Bank

Vissim AS has signed a long-term framework agreement with Equinor to provide digital marine optimization solutions to the operator’s offshore wind projects, including an immediate call-off for Dogger Bank A, B and C.

Dogger Bank is the world’s biggest offshore wind farm under construction, made up of 3 wind farms each comprising 1.2 GW installed capacity. The combined field will meet around 5% of the UK’s electricity demand.

Today’s offshore windfarms generate and require tremendous quantities of operational data. This ranges from weather forecasts and vessel and personnel locations, through HSE and competence qualifications, to work orders, asset statuses and radio communication. Vissim synthesises and presents this data in a unique, actionable format - operating to industrial design and corporate cyber-security standards.

Nicholas Dent, Managing Director – Global Wind at Vissim AS, commented:

“Vissim is creating intelligent workflows alongside Equinor and other leading wind farm developers. The system is about getting the right planning and real-time data to the right people, in the right format, at the right time. This enhances collaboration between the many players in the construction and O&M ecosystem. Vissim’s systems help to manage risks in a changeable environment and further create value for developers and operators by avoiding repetition, deviation and delay. Our industrialized processes and global capability make Vissim a natural partner for scale offshore wind developers.” Vissim is a software developer and turnkey sensor and infrastructure provider for advanced marine optimization systems around the globe. So far this year Vissim offshore wind solutions have been deployed for new offshore wind construction projects in France, Scotland and Japan.

On the Norwegian continental shelf, Vissim continuously monitors more than 60 rigs and between 5,000 and 6,000 vessels on behalf of Equinor and other operators.

“We are delighted to be working with Equinor in the offshore wind industry too, to set a new standard in portfolio-level marine optimization, and to further extend our contribution to the energy decarbonization agenda,” concludes Nicholas Dent.

Vissim is headquartered in Horten, Norway, and has offices in the UK and Slovakia, in addition to a global partner network.
