DEME Offshore has been awarded a contract for the transport and installation of jackets and topsides for two Hollandse Kust offshore substations. DEME Offshore will also supply and install scour protection for both substations, which will be installed at the Hollandse Kust Noord and West Alpha wind farms.

The contract was awarded by the joint venture ENGIE Solutions-Iemants (a subsidiary of Smulders) that is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and offshore installation of the two substations.

Installation of the scour protection and jacket for Hollandse Kust (noord) is planned for the second half of 2021, while the topside for
Hollandse Kust Noord and jacket for West Alpha will be installed during the summer of 2022. The topside for West Alpha will be installed in 2023.

Bas Nekeman, Business Unit Director at DEME Offshore, comments: “We are very pleased with the trust one of the most experienced leaders in offshore substation construction has again placed in DEME Offshore. The combination of ENGIE Solutions-Iemants’ extensive know-how, combined with our expertise in tailored solutions for the offshore wind industry, has proven to be successful in the past few years when we have worked closely together to achieve challenging projects such as the SeaMade and Moray East offshore wind farms.”

The offshore platforms the two platforms will be located in the North Sea along the Dutch coast and will be operational by respectively 2023 and 2024.

These 700 MW platforms will be the fifth and sixth large-scale grid connections for offshore wind energy in the Netherlands, built and operated by TenneT. The first high-voltage connections for the wind farms near Borssele are now operational, and will be followed by the connections for Hollandse Kust (zuid) in 2022. TenneT will realise approximately 9.6 GW of high-voltage connections in the Dutch North Sea by 2030.
