Following the announcement that CrossWind received the permit for the Hollandse Kust (noord) offshore wind farm, Van Oord confirms that it has been contracted for the Balance of Plant scope.
Hollandse Kust (noord) will have an installed capacity of 759 MW, generating at least 3.3 TWh per year. This is enough renewable power to supply more than 1 million Dutch households with green electricity. CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco, plans to have the wind farm operational by 2023.
Tjalling de Bruin, Project Director CrossWind: “We are looking forward to working with our partner Van Oord to deliver the offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust (noord) in the Netherlands. With signed contracts in place and the Final Investment Decision taken, work can start in order to deliver clean energy by 2023.”
As Balance of Plant contractor, Van Oord’s activities encompass the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the foundations, inter array cables and transportation and installation of the wind turbines. Van Oord will deploy its offshore installation vessels Aeolus, MPI Adventure and MPI Resolution and cable-laying vessel Nexus.
