A solar power system is designed for offshore platform in order to supply power to DC load including emergency lighting, VHF radio, remote terminal unit, well head control panel, multiphase flow meter, fire and gas panel, marine lantern, and fog horn system. In this paper, the main objective is to design, analyze and sizing the solar power system for DC loads at offshore platform. This project will be beneficial for oil and gas industries in installing their offshore platform because by using the solar power system, they can actually reduce the cost of the project in terms of supplying the DC power. A study concerning the economics of solar versus generators as a choice of power was conducted. The study considers all costs involved: modules, mounting structure, pumps, miscellaneous components, installation, operation, maintenance, yearly inspection, component replacement and salvage value. The solar power system will be installed at a new minimum facilities wellhead platform situated approximately 150 km southwest of Hazira in the Gulf of Khambat, offshore Gujarat Province, India.
