TenneT Acquires Hollandse Kust Offshore Power Platform
Transmission system operator TenneT has officially taken control of the Hollandse Kust (noord) platform.
This milestone was marked by the signing of the Taking-Over certificate, following successful project engineering, procurement, construction, offshore installation, and hook-up, according to a press release.
This platform is the first of three projects completed by the joint venture between Equans and Smulders for TenneT. The construction of the other two platforms, Hollandse Kust (west Alfa) and (west Beta), is underway and expected to be completed by late 2023 and mid-2025 respectively.
The project has demonstrated a strong commitment to environmental consciousness. The joint venture worked with a supply chain focused on minimizing environmental impact, and the platform’s substructure features eco-friendly solutions, including “fish hotels.”
Guus Siteur, project lead HKN platform at TenneT, hailed the timely delivery of this high-quality project, attributing it to effective collaboration between all parties involved.
In 2020, TenneT TSO B.V. awarded the joint venture contract for the engineering, procurement, construction, offshore installation, connection, and testing of the offshore transformer station for the Hollandse Kust (noord) wind farm zone. The joint venture also holds the contract for TenneT’s Hollandse Kust (west Alpha), and the Hollandse Kust (west Beta) platforms.
