To transport the 2100MW from the offshore windfarms Hollandse Kust Noord, Hollandse Kust West Alpha en Hollandse Kust West Beta , a 380kV underground cable connection will be constructed between the transformer station at Velsen and the 380kV substation Beverwijk. In 2021 the horizontal directional drillings are finished and the cables have been partly installed. In 2023, windfarm Hollandse Kust Noord will be the first operational windfarm to transport wind energy to this new grid connection.
