Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and CrossWind have executed a contract to deliver the turbines for the 759-MW Hollandse Kust Noord offshore windfarm
The deal includes the supply of 69 SG 11.0-200 DD offshore wind turbines and a 15-year service and maintenance agreement.
Final conditions are due to be met in the coming months, converting the contract into a firm order. A notice to proceed has been signed, following issuance of an irrevocable permit from the Dutch authorities to CrossWind in December 2020.
The Hollandse Kust Noord project is the third subsidy-free offshore wind project in the Netherlands.
It is the first project for Siemens Gamesa with joint venture partner Shell, and the second offshore project with joint venture partner Eneco. CrossWind’s parent companies Shell and Eneco have already taken the final investment decision.
CrossWind is a joint venture between Shell (79.9%) and Eneco (20.1%) that was created especially for the offshore wind project.
Construction work on Hollandse Kust Noord is expected to commence in 2023 with turbine commissioning due to be completed the same year.
