International engineering and technical service provider Offshore Design Engineering Ltd (ODE) has been supporting the ERM DOLPHYN project over the last three years, delivering engineering support to the floating offshore wind project which is led by engineering partner ERM. ERM DOLPHYN (Deepwater Offshore Local Production of HYdrogeN) is a patented technology that uses an array of moored floating substructures, each of which possesses a wind turbine and localised hydrogen production, to produce ‘green’ hydrogen at scale. Avoiding the traditional process of producing hydrogen through fossil fuels, the ERM DOLPHYN project has been recognised for its efficient resource usage and environmental sustainability.
Thus far, ODE has contributed engineering works across the concept, FEED and detailed design stages for the project’s hydrogen production units, supporting facilities, export pipeline and onshore reception facility, interface engineering with the sub-structure and WTG. Individual works have included the development of a detailed process design, electrical systems, plant layout, 3D model and technical safety reviews.
The project has been funded by the Energy Innovation Programme, run by the UK Government’s Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
