To remind, HSM Offshore began the assembly of the jacket in Schiedam at the beginning of the year,

The Dutch company secured a contract by TenneT TSO for the construction of the Borssele Beta platform in September 2017, after it had cut the first steel for the Borssele Alpha transformer station.

HSM Offshore is in charge of the engineering, procurement, construction, transport, installation, connection and testing of the two 700MW platforms.

Borssele Alpha and Beta are the first large-scale grid connections to be constructed under the National Energy Agreement for offshore wind farms in the Netherlands.
