Van Oord has successfully installed the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm, which is situated 18.5 kilometres off the west coast of the Netherlands near Egmond aan Zee. This cutting-edge wind farm now generates sufficient renewable energy to meet the needs of over 1 million Dutch households.

CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco, contracted Van Oord in 2020. As a Balance of Plant contractor, Van Oord’s activities encompassed the design, engineering, procurement and transport and installation of the 70 wind turbine foundations, inter-array cables, as well as the transport and installation of the wind turbines themselves.

Van Oord started installing the foundations of the wind farm in October 2022 and will complete its scope within the year, making this one of the fastest-installed wind farms of its kind. Van Oord deployed amongst others its flexible fallpipe vessels Bravenes and Nordnes, offshore installation jack-up vessel MPI Resolution, cable-laying vessel Nexus and trencher Dig-It and teamed up with other industry partners DEME, Seajacks and Cadeler.

Offshore wind is essential in achieving the energy transition in the Netherlands. Over the past years, Van Oord has played an important role in the development and construction of Dutch offshore wind farms, such as Gemini Offshore Wind Park, Windpark Fryslân and offshore wind farm Borssele III & IV and site V. With the completion of the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm, Van Oord can add another project to its impressive track record in offshore wind.

“Thank you and congratulations to our partner Van Oord who have worked tirelessly and safely to achieve this major milestone in the construction of our Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind park, accelerating the Dutch energy transition,” Tjalling de Bruin, CEO and Project Director at CrossWind, said.
