Allseas has strengthened its ambition to become a key contractor in the offshore renewables market with the seamless installation of a transformer station for an offshore grid that connects a major offshore wind farm area to the Dutch mainland. Pioneering Spirit successfully installed the “Alpha” high-voltage convertor platform for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (HKZ) offshore grid project in the North Sea, 20 km off the coast of The Hague on Sunday 26 December.

Energy project of strategic importance
Offshore transformer stations play a crucial role in the delivery of clean energy, converting the wind power generated by turbines to high voltage electricity and feeding it into the national grid.Alpha is one of two transformer stations that will connect the HKZ development with the Dutch mainland grid, generating enough clean electricity to power more than two million households per year.




Next generation turbines and monopiles
“Aside from playing a key role in the installation of large transformer stations, we also see a future role for Pioneering Spirit in the installation of next generation turbines and monopiles,” adds Edward Heerema.“Those structures are so heavy and large, Pioneering Spirit’s versatility and capabilities offers wind farm developers and operators a complete solution for transportation and installation.”
