Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy and Vattenfall extend Hollandse Kust Zuid turbine supply to cover the entire Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm zone, making this the largest turbine collaboration to date for Vattenfall. Vattenfall will act as launching customer to pioneer Siemens Gamesa’s most powerful offshore wind turbine. The Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm zone is planned to be fitted with approximately 140 units of Siemens Gamesa’s upgraded version of their Direct Drive offshore wind turbine SG DD-193, which now features the ability to reach a capacity of 11 MW.

This capacity upgrade, available under certain site conditions, means that fewer turbines are needed to generate the same amount of energy. This will reduce installation, operations and maintenance costs and thereby contribute to further reductions in Levelized Cost of Energy for offshore wind. Furthermore, it significantly reduces the environmental impact of installation and operation of the wind farm.

In July 2019, Vattenfall won the tender to build Hollandse Kust Zuid 3&4. In March 2018, a permit had already been awarded to Vattenfall to build Hollandse Kust Zuid 1&2. Both tenders were won by Vattenfall with a zero subsidy bid. Once fully operational, Hollandse Kust Zuid will generate enough power to supply up to three million households with green electricity. The development of the wind farm is subject to certain conditions, including Vattenfall’s final investment decision.
