Wind Energy – HKN
TKF awarded a contract to Vos Prodect to supply the low hang-off systems for the Hollandse Kunst Noord (HKN) offshore wind farm.
The delivery of the systems is planned for the end of Q4 2022. The 125 km2 wind park is located 18.5 km out off the coast, near Egmond aan Zee.
The subsidy-free wind farm is developed by CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco. By 2023, when CrossWind plans the wind farm to be fully operational, the total installed capacity equates to 759 MW, which is beneficial for at least 3.3 TWh per year. The annual energy production is equivalent to the energy demand to supply over 1,000,000 households and approximately 2.5% of the total Dutch energy demand.
Vos Prodect will supply the low Cable Hang-off system to secure the inter-array cables in the wind turbine. This design has been chosen in close consultation with the cable supplier.
Last year, TKF contracted Vos Prodect to supply Cable Hang-off systems for the wind farm Hollandse Kust Zuid, which is located approximately 22 kilometers from the Dutch coast, between The Hague and Zandvoort.
