Dutch-German transmission system operator TenneT has issued a tender for Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) for its future 2GW High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) offshore platforms.

The goal of this Tender is to contract a party for the certification of the basic design. The platform will be designed in accordance with Dutch Law and design codes typically applicable in the Dutch Sector, generally following DNVGL rules.

The certification of the basic design shall be carried out in accordance with DNVGL ST0145 and DNVGL SE0073. The deadline for application submissions is 11am (GMT+1) 20 January 2020. The contract is due to take place on 3 February 2020 and end on 1 May 2021.

As offshore grid operator for both Germany and Denmark, TenneT expects to invest EUR 35 billion in offshore and onshore grid connections across the both countries in the next ten years. Approximately 80% of TenneT's investments are related to renewables, such as wind and solar energy. In the period up to 2030, TenneT expects to have realised approximately 25 GW of connection capacity for offshore wind farms in the Dutch and German parts of the North Sea, transmitting electricity to power 31 million households annually.

TenneT is currently in the process of constructing the
Borssele Alpha offshore grid connection project for which the topside recently departed its fabrication facility.  The 700 MW project will be operated by TenneT, and transmit energy generated by the Borssele 1&2 wind farm to the onshore grid.
