Heerema Marine Contractors has been awarded a contract by Petrofac for the TenneT’s Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) Alpha offshore wind project, located in the North Sea off the Dutch coast.
Heerema will transport and install the HKZ Alpha HVAC platform, a high-voltage substation which will be installed in the second quarter of 2020.
Installation will be performed by Hereema’s semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir.
Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO of Heerema, commented: “Heerema is very excited to support Petrofac and TenneT in the development of this project in the North Sea. It also gives us the opportunity to contribute to the realization of the Dutch government’s clean energy targets. Heerema is continuously seeking opportunities to strengthen its position in the international offshore market through innovation, pro-activity and reliability. This project fits Heerema’s agenda to participate in innovative and sustainable projects. Our vessels are ideally suited to install the additional infrastructure needed to increase the Dutch offshore electricity production capacity.”
