Wind energy – Hollandse Kust Zuid
On Thursday 10 June 2021 the jetty that will be used for the transport of staff and equipment during the construction, and operation and maintenance phases of the Hollandse Kust Zuid offshore wind farm, was officially handed over to Vattenfall.
The HKZ OWF is located approximately 20 km off the Dutch port of IJmuiden.
Located right next to Vattenfall’s new operations and maintenance hub, which is currently under construction, the jetty has space for three Crew Transfer Vessels (CTVs) that will transport personnel and small equipment to the wind farm. The three CTV spaces are each equipped with a crane, which can also be used for training purposes.
On 1 July, Vattenfall will start installing the first foundations for the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm. The construction phase is expected to last two years.
After the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm has been fully commissioned in the spring of 2023, Vattenfall’s Operations & Maintenance (O&M) organization will take over the management of the wind farm.
