In the Europoort area nearby Rotterdam windfarm Hartel II has been build. Windfarm Hartel II is a retrofitting project of the existing windfarm that consisted of five wind turbines on the same location. Investment Engineering Projects placed eight Alstom ECO-110 wind turbines of 3 MW each. The windfarm has a total production capacity of 24 MW, sufficient the supply the electricity for 18.000 households. The windturbines are placed at a narrow strip between the highway N15 and the Hartel canal. The turbines are interconnected by means of 25 kV cables to transport the energy produced to a new built substation. The substation transports and delivers the energy to the network of grid owner Stedin. Realization of the cable network and the building of the SCADA- and 25kV substation started in august 2014. The first windturbine produces power since December 2014.
Activities of Energy Solutions:
During this project Energy Solutions has contributed to the design and realization of this project. The following activities were carried out jointly with Investment Engineering Projects:
- The electrical part of the tendering documents for design and realization of all windfarm cabling as well as the realization of the SCADA- and substation.
- Technical support during the tendering and selection proces.
- Project support during engineering, fabrication and construction. Guidance and support during realization, testing and energizing of the electrical infrastructure.
- Coordination of the interfaces between turbine supplier Alstom, civil-electrical constructor Ballast Nedam and the 25kV grid connection of Stedin.
