Last Wednesday, we proudly announced the award by TenneT TSO B.V. of the contract to install two 65-kilometer-long export cables that will connect the planned Hollandse Kust West Beta 700 MW offshore wind farm to TenneT’s onshore grid in the Netherlands as well as 9-kilometer-long 66kV interconnector cable. With this project and through our client TenneT, Boskalis is advancing the energy transition by making renewable energy available in the Netherlands.
In addition to installing turbine foundations, export and inter-array cables and executing related activities including geotechnical and geophysical surveys, the removal of unexploded ordnance from the seabed as well as beach and seabed preparation works, our marine transport services also play a pivotal role in this transition. Not only are we able to transport enormous jackets and monopile foundations, our specialized vessels also enable the transportation of enormous substations. We are therefore delighted that we were able to transport the topside of TenneT’s Beta substation of the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm on board our semi-submersible heavy transport vessel Mighty Servant 3 from Dubai to Rotterdam, taking the realization of this offshore wind farm a step further.
