VIDEO: Remko Put about Hollandse Kust Zuid
“Hollandse Kust Zuid is part of the ‘Net op Zee’-project of TenneT in which we will connect the future offshore windparks with the nationwide high voltage grid”, says Remko Put, Project leader of Hollandse Kust Zuid.
Het crane barge ‘Sleipnir’ installs the jacket for the Alpha platform of the offshore wind park Hollandse Kust Zuid. The jacket is the foundation for the topside. The transformer in the topside convert the generated electricity of the wind turbines in a higher voltage to transport to shore. The first platform for Hollandse Kust Zuid is being delivered in 2021. Remko “Borssele was a succesful project, but the intention is to make this project even more succesful because of the lessons learnt”.
