TenneT has selected Dura Vermeer, BAM Infra Nederland and Visser & Smit Bouw in a framework agreement for civil engineering works for the construction of the 2GW land stations in the Netherlands. In a framework agreement, TenneT has selected Dura Vermeer, BAM Infra Nederland and Visser & Smit Bouw for the civil engineering works for the construction of the land-based stations for the 2GW projects in the Netherlands. From 2024, TenneT will realise the connection of offshore wind farms according to a new 2GW standard. With this new standard, the power generated by offshore wind farms will be brought ashore via a High Voltage Direct Current connection. Land stations are the link between the offshore wind farms and the high-voltage grid. At the land station, the direct current is converted to alternating current and the voltage is transformed from 525kV to 380kV, making it suitable for the Dutch high voltage grid. Dura Vermeer, BAM Infra Nederland and Visser & Smit Bouw will realise the buildings and building-related installations for these land stations. Until 2030, this involves the realisation of at least eight land-based stations. The framework agreement can be extended for new 2GW projects are announced within the term of the contract.The basic design of the land stations has already been made. The selected parties are now directly involved in making the detailed design to ensure that the right solutions are chosen. Work on the land stations will start in 2024. The first delivery of the civil engineering work for the land stations is expected in 2026.
