Vattenfall and TenneT have signed an agreement for the offshore grid connection for the Hollandse Kust Zuid 3&4 offshore wind farm.
The companies said that the deal marks “a milestone” in the development of the 700 MW wind farm. It follows a similar deal signed in 2019 for the Hollandse Kust Zuid 1&2 project.
“This is an important milestone, and I'm pleased that the contracts could be signed so quickly – just nine months after winning the bid in July 2019,” said Catrin Jung, Head Offshore Wind at Vattenfall. “We’re looking forward to work with TenneT on Hollandse Kust Zuid 3 & 4.”
“The development of an offshore grid is well on track,” said Marco Kuijpers, Director Offshore at TenneT. “Hollandse Kust Zuid is the second wind farm site to which we will be providing access in the form of two standardised AC connections of around 700 MW each.”
The installation of the turbines at Hollandse Kust Zuid will start in 2022 and the wind farm will start producing power in 2023. The windfarm will have a total maximum capacity of 1500 MW.
