Wind Energy – Transformer Station
Yesterday the move-out of the topside for second transformer station of a series of 3 substations for TenneT took place in Hoboken, Belgium.
The ‘Hollandse Kust (west Alpha)’ substation has left the gigantic 300T hall for the yard where the work can continue.
This substation will have a capacity of 700 MW and will have its definitive place 50 km off the coast of Egmond aan Zee in The Netherlands.
The offshore transformer platform is being constructed by a joint venture between Iemants, a subsidiary of Smulders, and Equans (formerly known as ENGIE), under a contract with TenneT signed in 2020.
