Vos Prodect secures cable hang-off deal for Hollandse Kust Noord

Vos Prodect Innovations (VPI) has been awarded a contract by Twentsche Kabelfabriek (TKF) to supply cable hang-off systems for the Hollandse Kunst Noord (HKN) offshore wind farm in the Netherlands.

VPI will manufacture and deliver the low cable hang-off system to secure the inter-array cables in the wind turbines. The delivery is planned for the end of the fourth quarter of this year.

The systems are, in addition to the three-core subsea cable, part of the project deliverables in the scope of supply of TFK, said Matthijn Wielart, project manager of TKF for HKN.

In July 2021, TFK signed a contract with Van Oord, the Balance of Plant (BoP) contractor for KHN, for the delivery of 140 kilometres of 66 kV inter-array cables and associated accessories.

For VPI, this is their second contract awarded by TFK, after securing the first one last year for the supply of cable hang-off systems for the Hollandse Kust Zuid offshore wind project.
