Industry’s first for Heerema Vlissingen & HFG Engineering

Heerema Vlissingen and HFG Engineering, both operating companies of Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands have successfully executed the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract with ABB in Sweden for the fabrication of a 400 MW offshore HVDC-station in the German sector of the North Sea on behalf of energy producer E.ON.

Heerema Vlissingen together with sister company HFG Engineering, originally specialised in offshore engineering and fabrication of structures for clients in the oil & gas industry, have successfully leveraged their expertise to execute this challenging project in the relatively new offshore wind energy market. The engineering started in November 2007 and construction in March 2008.
