    Van Oord has finished the installation of the 759-megawatt HKN wind farm

    Van Oord has accomplished the successful installation of the 759-megawatt Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm developed by CrossWind. Situated 18.5 kilometers off the west coast of the Netherlands near Egmond aan Zee, this newly established offshore wind facility was commissioned by CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco, which selected Van Oord as the balance of plant contractor in 2020.


    Van Oord’s responsibilities included the design, engineering, procurement, transport, and installation of the 70 turbine foundations, inter-array cables, as well as the transportation and installation of the turbines. Commencing the installation of the wind farm’s foundations in October 2022, Van Oord has successfully completed its tasks within the span of a year, marking one of the swiftest installations of its kind.


    For the project, Van Oord utilized its versatile fallpipe vessels, Bravenes and Nordnes, along with the offshore installation jack-up vessel MPI Resolution, cable-laying vessel Nexus, and trencher Dig-It. Collaborating with industry partners such as DEME, Seajacks, and Cadeler, Van Oord has achieved a significant milestone in the renewable energy sector.


    Tjalling de Bruin, chief executive and project director at CrossWind, commented “Thank you and congratulations to our partner Van Oord which has worked tirelessly and safely to achieve this major milestone in the construction of our Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind park, accelerating the Dutch energy transition.”
