The installation of the second offshore transformer platform for the grid connection of wind farm Hollandse Kust (zuid) can be carried out as planned. TenneT has had investigations carried out on the jacket (substructure) that was damaged in January during storm Corrie by a collision with the adrift vessel Julietta D.
The investigation shows that the damage to the jacket is limited. The damaged parts of the jacket can be repaired at a later stage after topside installation. TenneT expects the Hollandse Kust (zuid) Beta topside to be installed at the end of March or early April.
On Monday 31 January, the freighter Julietta D. was adrift due to storm Corrie in the area where TenneT is building two transformer platforms (Hollandse Kust (zuid) Alpha and Beta). These transformer platforms are part of the offshore connection of wind farm Hollandse Kust (zuid). The wind farm is being built by Vattenfall. The cargo ship collided with the Beta jacket. No people were working at the platform at that moment.
