Borssele Beta substation Leaves HSM Schiedam

Just after 07.00 this morning the Wagenborg Barge 7 under tow from the tug Centaurus sailed from the HSM Offshore Facility on Wilhelminahaven in Schiedam, near Rotterdam with topsides of the world’s largest AC substation, Borssele Beta OHVS (Offshore High Voltage Substation). The 3,700t topside has been built for the Dutch TSO, TenneT, and will connect the Borssele 3 and 4 offshore wind farm projects to the Dutch onshore grid.

On arrival at the wind farm the lift will be carried out by the  heavy lift crane vessel, Seaway Strashnov, which is already near the location.
