Prysmian Details Hollandse Kust Zuid 3 and 4 Work
Prysmian Group has shared additional details on their contract to provide cables for Vattenfall’s Hollandse Kust Zuid 3 and 4 offshore wind farms in the Netherlands.
The award follows Vattenfall’s successful bid for the permit to develop these non-subsidised wind farms. The notice to proceed is expected by early 2020 at the latest, Prysmian said.
Prysmian will design, test, and supply 172 kilometres of 66 kV XLPE-insulated inter-array cables, as well as the related accessories.
The cables will be produced in Nordenham, a Prysmian centre of excellence located in Germany. Delivery is due by 2022. The cables will be installed by Seaway 7.
The Hollandse Kust Zuid 3 and 4 offshore wind farms will feature Siemens Gamesa 10MW wind turbines and have a combined capacity of around 760MW.
Vattenfall plans to bundle the development of the wind farms with Hollandse Kust Zuid 1 and 2 project, which the company won in the first non-subsidized offshore wind tender in the Netherlands.
