TenneT has awarded Petrofac the contract for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) offshore grid connection Beta HVAC platform. Petrofac was already awarded the contract for HKZ platform Alpha in July 2018 and subsequent confirmation of HKZ platform Beta option.
Petrofac is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of both the third (HKZ platform Alpha) and fourth (HKZ platform Beta) substations which have a total contract value of approximately US$200 million.
The HKZ Beta platform is one of eight of TenneT’s 700-megawatt standardised concept transformer substations that will be installed offshore of the Netherlands until 2030. HKZ platform Alpha is scheduled to become operational in 2021, with HKZ platform Beta scheduled to become operational in 2022.
George Salibi, Chief Operating Officer – Engineering & Construction, said: “With the initial stages of the work for HKZ platform Alpha well underway, we are delighted to confirm the option for HKZ platform Beta. This important project integrates our engineering, project management and procurement capabilities and we look forward to the safe and efficient delivery of both platforms for TenneT.” Source: Petrofac
