Updated: Potential first for UK in plans to reuse offshore platforms for wind farms

Plans have been submitted which could see a first for the UK North Sea for oil platforms being converted to support offshore wind farms.

DNO, which took over Aberdeen-based Faroe Petroleum earlier this year, has received government approval to decommission its Ketch and Schooner platforms.

Within the plans, the Norwegian firm stated it is in discussions with “an offshore wind farm company” about the possibility of converting the platforms into support and accommodation facilities for workers at wind projects.
