Vattenfall Picks EDS HV for Danish Offshore Wind Work

EDS HV has secured two contracts with Vattenfall to provide high voltage network commissioning and safety management at the Kriegers Flak, Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord offshore wind projects in Denmark.

In addition to the commissioning scope, EDS HV will be offering full high-voltage safety management.

The company is also providing full management of all Senior Authorised Persons (SAPs) on-site at the three wind farms.

Work commenced in June, with Kriegers Flak scheduled to be in operation by the end of 2021 at the latest, and Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord scheduled for commissioning by the end of 2023.

“The good relationship Vattenfall have had with EDS over the last couple of projects was key when deciding to continue with them on our next three Danish wind farms. The support and guidance from EDS has really been valuable for Vattenfall in commissioning our wind farms safely,” said Morten Jochimsen, Commissioning Manager at Vattenfall.

Located 15-40km offshore, the 604.8 MW Kriegers Flak will comprise 72 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbines installed on monopile foundations.

Vesterhav Syd and Vesterhav Nord, respectively located nine and eight kilometers offshore, will comprise a total of 41 Siemens Gamesa 8.4 MW turbines with a combined capacity of 344.4 MW.
