For equinor, Hitachi Energy delivered the equipment for two ±80 kilovolt 100 MW HVDC Light® converter stations. One station is situated onshore at Haugsneset, near the Statoil Kårstø plant on the Norwegian west coast, and the other is on the platform situated 200 km west of the Norwegian coastline.
The Johan Sverdrup installation located at Utsira Height is expected to become the largest producing oil field in the North Sea by the time it reaches its peak. In the first phase of the development plan, four platforms will be built and the production startup was in 2019. \
Hitachi Energy has the majority of the world's HVDC power-from-shore projects in operation: Statoil’s Troll A 1&2, delivered in 2005, BP’s Valhall, delivered in 2011, Troll A 3&4, delivered in 2015 and Equinor's Johan Sverdrup, delivered in 2018. All are located in the North Sea.
