Mech-Tool Engineering (MTE) has won a contract from DryDocks World to provide fire and blast solutions for the Hollandse Kust Zuid Beta offshore substation.
The contract award follows MTE completing a similar contract for the Hollandse Kust Zuid Alpha offshore platform.
Under the contract, MTE designed, engineered, fabricated, and supplied its A0 fire-rated and Non-Rated (NR) external and internal profiled wall panels for the offshore platform.
Drydocks World is responsible for the construction, engineering, commissioning, and load-out of the topsides for the HKZ Alpha and Beta platforms.
The jacket foundations for the substations will be delivered by Eversendai Offshore. The HKZ Alpha jacket and the accompanying pin piles arrived from the United Arab Emirates to the Netherlands earlier this month.
Petrofac is the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contractor for TenneT’s two substations.
The 700 MW HKZ Alpha and Beta platforms will collect the electricity generated at Vattenfall’s 1.5 GW Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm and deliver it to the Dutch grid.
The wind farm’s 140 Siemens Gamesa 11 MW wind turbines are scheduled to be fully operational in 2023.
