Seaway 7 selected for Hollandse Kust (Zuid) activities

Seaway 7, part of Subsea 7, has been selected by Vattenfall to perform activities for the 760 MW Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) 1 & 2 and potentially 3 & 4 offshore wind farm projects.

Under the contract, Seaway 7 would be responsible for the transport and installation of 76 monopile foundations and the laying of the inter-array cables. Should Vattenfall be awarded the development of the HKZ 3 & 4 project, Seaway 7 would be performing the same activities.

The integrated offshore installation activities for both the HKZ 1 & 2 and HKZ 3 & 4 wind farm projects are planned to be executed in 2022 using Seaway 7’s heavy lift and cable lay vessels, subject to the award of HKZ 3 & 4 to Vattenfall and pending Vattenfall’s Final Investment Decision.

Steph McNeill, SVP Subsea 7 Renewables & Heavy Lifting, said: “We look forward to working collaboratively with Vattenfall as a trusted partner to support the installation of the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farms and help to deliver the first zero-subsidy offshore wind projects in the Netherlands.” Source: Subsea 7
