TKF awarded VPI with the supply of Cable Hang-Off systems for the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm (HKZ).
VPI announces a new contract with TKF for engineering and supply of VPI’s Cable Hang-Off System for the offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust Zuid. With proud we congratulate TKF for the manufacturing and delivery of 150km of 66 kV aluminum core cables and accessories on the Vattenfall project, located in the North Sea.
VPI will deliver the low version (250mm height) of the Cable Hang-Off System. This version has been designed to provide ease of assembly in confined spaces at the cable deck of the offshore platform. The tailor-made design has previously been used at Fryslan offshore wind farm and has extensively been tested in combination with cables of TKF.
At approximately 22 kilometres from the Dutch coast, between The Hague and Zandvoort, the offshore wind farm HKZ 1-2 is located. The wind energy area includes four offshore lots in total, Hollandse Kust Zuid 1 until Hollandse Kust Zuid 4. In March 2018, Vattenfall won the tender for the first two lots (approximately 115 km²) and in July 2019 the second tender for the other two lots. This project will be the largest subsidy-free wind farm at sea.
The delivery of VPI’s Cable Hang-Off systems will start in 2021 and the wind farm is expected to be fully operational in 2023. The wind farm will eventually have an installed capacity of approximately 750 MW, and an annual electricity output equal to the consumption of approximately 1 to 1.5 million Dutch households.
VPI is pleased to contribute to realizing the global energy transition and thereby making the world greener. Offshore wind farms have become incredibly important and can be seen as a crucial factor in the process of sustainability. We at VPI are ready to support this.
