Delft-based high voltage engineering and consultancy company Energy Solutions B.V. has won a contract to provide the Dutch transmission system operator TenneT with heat monitoring systems for sea and land cables.

The contract covers the design, manufacture, delivery and installation of DTS (distributed temperature sensing) and RTTR (real time thermal rating) cable monitoring systems suitable for 220kV sea cables and 380kV land cables which will connect the offshore AC platforms with the respective land stations and the existing 380kV grid.

The systems will be used for cables installed on the west coast of the Netherlands and in the Dutch North Sea.

TenneT has been officially designated as the offshore grid operator in the Netherlands and will contribute to the fulfilment of the National Energy Agreement by developing offshore grid connections with a total capacity of at least 3,500MW during the period until 2023.

These connections will be constructed in accordance with a standardized concept and will have a capacity of 700MW each.
