Sea & Land Project Engineering secures Hollandse Kust Noord deal
Sea & Land Project Engineering has been appointed to provide the detailed design of the offshore transformer station jacket and foundations for the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm.
The offshore transformer station consists of a 45m jacket weighing 1,930t and 870t piles supporting a topside structure consisting of four decks weighing approximately 4,100t, the company said.
Recently, TenneT selected the consortium of ENGIE Fabricom and Iemants to design, engineer, produce, deliver, transport, and install the 700 MW offshore substation for Hollandse Kust Noord.
Engineering activities have commenced and construction work for the topside and jacket will start in October.
The load-out of the jacket is planned for Q3 2021. The topside is scheduled to leave ENGIE’s yard in Hoboken in the spring of 2022.
The Hollandse Kust Noord wind farm will comprise two zones with a combined capacity of between 693 MW and 760 MW.
The zero-subsidy tender round for the rights to build and operate the wind farm closed on 30 April. RVO plans to announce the winner by the end of July.
The wind farm is expected to be operational by 2023.
