Origo Solutions has been awarded a contract to develop SCADA system (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) for Hywind Scotland Pilot Park, the world's first floating wind park.

Origo Solutions is going to deliver control and data acquisition for five floating offshore wind turbines as well as the operation and control of sub-station onshore.

Origo Solutions’ scope includes design, production, testing and commissioning. The system will be supplied with Siemens technology and includes delivery of IEC 61850 interface for electrical control devices, and interfaces to anchor monitoring, ballast systems, weather systems and other auxiliary systems.

The project has already started and the first delivery is in September 2016, Hywind Pilot Park is planned for operation in the last quarter of 2017.

«As is the case with many NODE companies, Origo Solution has also faced new challenges due to lower oil prices and lower activity levels in the oil and gas industry. Thus, we are very proud to enter a new market”, says Øystein Netland, Director Safety & Automation Systems at Origo Solutions.
