Vattenfall and TenneT have signed an agreement for the offshore grid connection for wind farm Hollandse Kust Zuid 3 & 4. Last year, both parties also signed an agreement for Hollandse Kust Zuid 1 & 2.
The installation of the turbines at Hollandse Kust Zuid will start in 2022 and the wind farm will start producing power in 2023. The wind farm will have a combined maximum capacity of 1,500MW.
TenneT will install 1,400MW of offshore grid connections for the Hollandse Kust Zuid site, and provide for additional flexible transport capacity. The plan is for operations on the connection for Hollandse Kust Zuid 1 & 2 to commence in 2021. The offshore grid connection for plots 3 & 4 will follow in 2022. All plots will be developed by Vattenfall. The grid connection for Hollandse Kust Zuid consist of two offshore transformer platforms, each with two 220 kV AC cables per platform. Electricity is transferred to onshore infrastructure via these cables.
