Hollandse Kust Zuid Wind Turbine Towers Arriving in Rotterdam
CS Wind PT has sent the first batch of wind turbine towers for the 1.5 GW Hollandse Kust Zuid offshore wind farm to Rotterdam, Netherlands.
This was the first shipment of five predicted for upcoming weeks, according to CS Wind PT’s social media update.
Blue Water Shipping and Sealine Spain supported CS Wind PT during the load out of the wind turbine components.
At the beginning of the year, South Korea’s CS Wind took full ownership of the Portuguese wind turbine tower manufacturer, ASM Industries.
In September, Seaway Heavy Lifting and Sif completed the installation of all 140 monopile foundations at the Hollandse Kust Zuid’s construction site some 20 kilometres off the Dutch province of Zuid-Holland.
Hollandse Kust Zuid, the world’s first subsidy-free offshore wind farm and soon to be the world’s largest operating offshore wind farm, comprises 140 Siemens Gamesa 11.0-200 DD wind turbines scheduled to be installed by March 2023.
The wind farm is halfway done with the 70th unit being installed last month by Cadeler’s wind turbine installation vessel Wind Osprey.
The project delivered the first power to the Dutch grid at the beginning of August.
Hollandse Kust Zuid is owned by Vattenfall, BASF, and Allianz. Vattenfall is leading the development of the project.
