Hollandse Kust (West Alpha) jacket is on its way to site
One week after the successful load out at Heerema Fabrication Group yard, the steel substructure for the transformer platform Hollandse Kust (West Alpha) has left the port of Vlissingen, and is on its way to it’s final destination off the coast of Egmond aan Zee.
This jacket was built by Heerema Fabrication Group in Vlissingen, for the joint-venture between Smulders and EQUANS BeLux – Offshore division, which has been building the platforms, including jacket and topside, for Hollandse Kust, North, West Alpha, and West Beta.
At the moment, the substation topside is still being built in the Hoboken area of Rotterdam. Installation is scheduled to take place next year. It will be completed in 2024, and the Arnhem-based electricity transmission system operator, TenneT, will use it to bring 700 megawatts of sustainable wind energy onshore.
