Project description:

TenneT is building a new 380 kV high-voltage connection between Beverwijk and Bleiswijk; the Randstad 380 kV Noordring. With a length of 60 kilometres, the new high-voltage connection is TenneT’s largest onshore project in the Netherlands. This new high-voltage connection is not only important for the security of supply of electricity in the Randstad region, but also for transporting the green energy from the projected wind farms in the North Sea. As part of Randstad 380 kV Noordring, the 380kV substation Oostzaan has been expanded with an extra bay.
