Heerema’s SSCV Sleipnir has safely and sustainably transported and installed the six-legged, 2858 metric ton, and 46-meter tall jacket for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) transformer station.
Heerema secured the contract for this project with the jacket and topside main contractor, Petrofac. While the HKZ windfarm developer is Vattenfall, and the transformer station is owned by the Dutch grid provider TenneT.
For the HKZ installation, Sleipnir picked up the Alpha Jacket in Vats, Norway, on September 2 before sailing to the HKZ location around 23 km from Scheveningen, The Netherlands. Installation was safely and successfully finalized on September 9, and the vessel was close enough to shore to be visible from the beaches nearby.
