Vattenfall Select Seaway 7 for HKZ 1 & 2 Offshore Wind Farms
Subsea 7 S.A. has announced today that Seaway 7 has been selected by Vattenfall as one of its partners for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) 1 & 2 offshore wind farm project. Seaway 7’s envisaged scope of work includes the transport and installation of 76 monopile foundations and the laying of the inter-array cables and will be led from Seaway 7’s main office in the Netherlands. The contract award value related to this project will not be recognised in Subsea 7’s Group backlog until final contractual terms have been agreed.
The HKZ 1 & 2 wind farm is being developed by Vattenfall as the first subsidy-free wind farm in the Netherlands and is located approximately 30 km from the coast in the North Sea. Once fully
operational, HKZ 1 & 2 will be capable of supplying 760 MW which will be enough to meet the electricity needs of approximately 1 million – 1.5 million households.
