Muehlhan Wind Service (MWS) has inked a contract with Siemens Gamesa for pre-assembly work on the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm, which is now being constructed in the Netherlands by CrossWind, a joint venture of Shell and Eneco.
The mechanical and electrical pre-assembly, crane/lifting operations, and entire ground transportation of nacelles, blades, and towers at the marshalling harbour at the Buss Terminal in the Port of Eemshaven will all be handled by MWS under the terms of the full-scope pre-assembly contract.
The 69 SG 11.0-200 DD wind turbines that will make up the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm will give the project a total capacity of 759 MW.
Carsten Nielsen, Sales Director for Installation at Muehlhan Wind Service: “MWS are honoured to be working with Siemens Gamesa once again. Our pre-assembly portfolio continues to expand, and we are thrilled to continue to strengthen our presence within the Dutch market and collaborate with Siemens Gamesa for this large scale project.”
With the final monopile erected by Van Oord in February and wind turbine parts beginning to arrive in the Dutch port of Eemshaven as of late January, offshore development on CrossWind’s Hollandse Kust Noord is well under way.
Around 18.5 kilometers off the shore of Egmond aan Zee, Hollandse Kust Noord is being built, and it will start operating later this year.
