TSO TenneT and CrossWind, a consortium of Shell and Eneco, will construct the offshore grid connection for the Hollandse Kust Noord wind farm, off the Dutch coast.
The signed agreements concern the realization, connection and transmission of power between the wind farm of CrossWind and the platform of TenneT. The wind farm and the grid connection are scheduled to be operational in 2023, enabling CrossWind to supply wind energy equivalent to the consumption of more than 1 million Dutch households through TenneT’s offshore grid.
The agreement signed by CrossWind and TenneT formalizes the connection of the offshore wind farm to the Dutch electricity grid. The agreement covers liabilities during the construction and operational phase, the technical aspects of the grid connection and applicable technical standards, and the requirements in terms of compliance with laws and regulations.
The wind farm Hollandse Kust North will have an installed capacity of 759 MW. The generated power will be transported through the offshore grid. This offshore grid is the total grid connection from the offshore wind farm Hollandse Kust North until the high-voltage substation in Beverwijk. The wind energy will then be transported to the energy consumers via the national high-voltage grid.
