The engineering company’s designs can be seen, among others, at offshore grid connection sites for Dutch 1.4 GW Borssele offshore wind farms, the Borssele Alpha and Beta platforms, as well as German offshore grid connections DolWin1 and HelWin2 where Iv delivered the design of the Dolwin Alpha (800 MW) and Helwin Beta (680 MW) platforms.

The company is also working on two platforms for TenneT’s new grid connections in the North Sea: IJmuiden Ver Beta and IJmuiden Ver Gamma, currently the largest converter platforms in the world, with a capacity of 2 GW each. Iv will also design one of the platforms for a new offshore wind area in the Netherlands, Nederwiek.
