Saipem SpA, Havfram Holding AS, and HVAS Invest Kappa AS (a holding company controlled by HitecVision) have signed a non-binding agreement to evaluate a potential collaboration in the development and construction of offshore wind farms.
The parties share the common objective to create a wider value proposition by integrating a range of construction and operational services, based on the parties’ respective competences and expertise.
In this context, the cooperation between the HitecVision-controlled Havfram and Saipem would build upon Havfram’s agile business model and consolidated expertise in installation of offshore facilities on one side, and Saipem’s offshore wind EPCI capabilities, competences, and assets on the other side.
The initiative is consistent with Saipem’s 2022 - 2025 Strategic Plan in that it aims at strengthening its value proposition for the offshore wind market identifying new and more profitable ways of execution, organisational, and management models, also through the integration of the latest generation installation assets such as jackups.
The agreement also corresponds to Havfram’s objective to accelerate growth in its EPCI and service-oriented offering towards offshore wind.
The parties will set up a joint team to study and develop the technical, organisational, financial, and valuation aspects of the possible collaboration, targeting, if the conditions will be met, to reach a detailed definition of the business model and a final agreement by the end of 3Q22.
