Peterson has been awarded a logistics contract from Petrofac to support the offshore installation phase of two 700 megawatt (MW) transformer platforms for TenneT’s Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) offshore grid.
The two substations will serve as a connection between the Vattenfall-operated offshore wind farm of the same name, and the electricity grid run by transmission operator TenneT.
Comprised of 140 11-MW turbines, the 1,500MW wind project is expected to be fully operational in 2023. It forms a major part of achieving the Dutch government’s target of 3.5GW of offshore wind capacity by that year.
