Heinen & Hopman to Look After HVAC System at Eneco Luchterduinen

Heinen & Hopman has secured a five-year contract from Eneco to supply 24/7 service and maintenance for the HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) system at the 129 MW Eneco Luchterduinen offshore wind farm.

The company also supplied the HVAC system for the wind farm.

The HVAC is especially important for the Offshore High Voltage Station (OHVS), the company said. The OHVS receives the electricity generated by the wind farm's 43 V112-3.0MW MHI Vestas turbines and transforms it from 33 kV to 150 kV before transmission back to shore.

The OHVS is equipped with many transformers, GIS and switchgears, which generate significant amounts of heat. This heat needs to be dissipated from the area in order to prevent overheating and failures of the OHVS, and cooling is essential for proper functioning of the vital parts of the substation and wind turbines.

Eneco Luchterduinen is located 23 kilometres off the west coast of the Netherlands, between Noordwijk and Zandvoort. The wind farm was built throughout 2014 and 2015.

Luchterduinen has been fully operational since September 2015, supplying wind power to almost 150.000 Dutch households, and yielding a CO2 emission reduction of 275.000 tonnes.
