Since 2020, the two high-voltage connections Borssele Alpha and Beta have been operational. Borssele offshore grid transports two times 700 MW of wind energy from the Borssele offshore wind energy area to the national high-voltage grid. In this video some nice images are shown of the construction of the two offshore platforms, the offshore cables, land cables and the transformer station on land.
We are proud that we have also been able to make a small contribution to the project. Between Q4 of 2014 and Q4 of 2016, Pondera and Arcadis prepared the environmental impact assessment, the appropriate assessment and permits for Borssele offshore Grid. It’s been great to see how the project has been realised within four years of our “paper” reports being issued.
