Offshore engineering company Semco Maritime has launched a new business area focusing on the concept and feasibility phases of offshore wind projects.

Its services include studies on how to transmit offshore wind power to onshore grids, while factoring in the balance between project capital and operational expenditures and asset availability, the company suggested.

The Danish contractor has provided engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for offshore, high-voltage substations and services and maintenance for offshore wind farms for nearly 20 years.

Its technology director for offshore wind, Tommy Flindt, said the company would leverage its experience in these areas into "early concept phases" of project development.

For some contracts, Semco will partner with "other strong engineering companies in the market", Flindt added.

Semco has regularly partnered with compatriot Bladt Industries, and will work with them to build and deliver the substation for the Vineyard Wind project in the US. 

It has also previously agreed to work with Taiwanese shipbuilders CSBC Corporation to supply substations for some of the country’s offshore wind farms, and with infrastructure advisors Moffatt & Nichol to supply substations to the US.
