"This is an important milestone, and I'm pleased that the contracts could be signed so quickly – just nine months after winning the bid", says Catrin Jung, Head Offshore Wind at Vattenfall. "We're looking forward to work with TenneT on Hollandse Kust Zuid 3 & 4. The combined wind farms of Hollandse Kust Zuid will be able to cover the total energy demand of between two and three million households, which makes it a major driving factor behind the transition to renewable energies in the Netherlands."

TenneT is already responsible for the grid connection of the Hollandse Kust Zuid 1 & 2 offshore wind farms. It is planned that the connection for these two wind farms will start operating in 2021. The offshore grid connection for clusters 3 & 4 will follow in 2022.

"The development of an offshore grid is well on track," states Marco Kuijpers, Director Offshore at TenneT. "Hollandse Kust Zuid is the second wind farm site to which we will be providing access in the form of two standardised AC connections of around 700 MW each. We are looking forward to working with Vattenfall as we develop HKZ 3 & 4."
