Siemens Gamesa picks DHSS IJmuiden as Hollandse Kust Zuid commissioning hub
Siemens Gamesa has selected DHSS’s offshore logistics terminal in Port of IJmuiden as the marshalling, storage, and logistics facility for the 1.5 GW Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm zone.
This logistics hub of DHSS will be used during the commissioning phase for Siemens Gamesa 140 SG 11.0-200 DD wind turbines which will be installed at this wind farm offshore the Netherlands.
The load-outs of the turbines from the SIF terminal at Rotterdam Maasvlakte will be taken care of by Cadeler’s installation vessel Wind Osprey, while the commissioning team of Siemens Gamesa will operate from DHSS ‘s logistics hub in IJmuiden.
The offshore logistics hub of DHSS in Port of IJmuiden is situated directly next door to the new built O&M facility for Vattenfall’s Hollandse Kust Zuid, the world’s first subsidy-free offshore wind farm.
”We are grateful for Siemens Gamesa ‘s trust in our company and approach. As of our experience and expertise in a large number of offshore wind projects, our processes are tailor made and very efficient, while keeping quality, health and safety at the highest industry standards,” said Wim Schouwenaar, CEO of DHSS.
Installation and commissioning at the project site is expected to commence in the second half of 2022 and last for twelve months.
Hollandse Kust Zuid is scheduled to be fully operational in 2023 when it will become the largest operating wind farm in the world.
