HOBOKEN, Belgium — The offshore substation for TenneT Equans (Engie)’s Hollandse Kust (noord) wind farm offshore the Netherlands has been moved from the construction hall in Hoboken, Belgium—another important milestone in the construction process.
This is a joint venture program with Smulders. Sailaway of the platform should follow in the summer, with the wind farm due to start operating in 2023.
The Hollandse Kust (noord, west Alpha and west Beta) offshore platforms will be in the North Sea offshore Noord-Hollan province, each generating 700 MW.
They will be the fifth, sixth and seventh large-scale grid connections for offshore wind energy in the Netherlands to be constructed and operated by TenneT.
