Vattenfall takes IJmuiden jetty for Hollandse Kust Zuid construction and maintenance

The jetty that Vattenfall will use to transport people and small equipment during the construction, operation, and maintenance of the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm has been officially delivered.

The jetty is in the IJmondhaven, right next to Vattenfall’s new maintenance hub, and it has three berths for the Crew Transfer Vessels, which will transport personnel and small equipment to the wind farm. Each of the three berths has its own crane, which can also be used for training. Contractor De Boer & De Groot Civiele Werken designed and built the jetty on behalf of Zeehaven IJmuiden NV.

Vattenfall will begin laying the first foundations for the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm on July 1st. Vattenfall will operate from a temporary office location in IJmuiden during the construction phase, which is expected to last two years. During the construction phase, planned and unplanned maintenance work will be carried out from this temporary location, and construction will be supervised. The Vattenfall team will go out to sea on a regular basis to assist with construction activities, taking advantage of the now-completed jetty. Windcat Workboats from IJmuiden provide personnel and equipment transportation.

New maintenance hub

Vattenfall’s Operations & Maintenance (O&M) organization will take over management of the wind farm after the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm is fully commissioned in the spring of 2023, ensuring efficient operation and planned and unplanned maintenance work from the port of IJmuiden. The O&M organization makes use of a new maintenance hub, which is being built by contractor Friso Bouwgroep on behalf of MSCY Vastgoed BV, a real estate subsidiary of Zeehaven IJmuiden NV. The new maintenance hub is being built steadily and is expected to be completed in early 2022.
