UK oil and gas service provider Petrofac has been awarded a contract by TenneT, the Dutch-German transmission grid operator, for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) grid connection works in the North Sea.
Petrofac will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the third and fourth substations.
The total contract value is around $200m, and the first substation, HKZ platform Alpha, is scheduled to become operational in 2021.
“We have been involved in a number of projects with TenneT in the North Sea, so are delighted with the opportunity to support them with this key project. The award of this EU tender builds on our relationship and is further demonstration of Petrofac’s expansion into adjacent sectors, including renewable energy,” said George Salibi, chief commercial officer of Petrofac.
