Seatrium and GE Vernova secure third contract for TenneT's 2-GW HVDC system 

It is set to commence in June 2024, with commissioning expected by 2031.

Seatrium Limited and GE Vernova Inc. have succesfully secured a third contract from TenneT TSO B.V. for the construction of a 2-gigawatt high voltage direct current (HVDC) electric offshore transmission system in the Netherlands.

The contract marks the third collaboration between Seatrium, GE Vernova, and TenneT, following a five-year Framework Cooperation Agreement established in March 2023.

Under the agreement, the consortium will cover three projects, each valued at approximately US$2.16b (EUR2b), including Nederwiek 2 along with IJmuiden Ver Beta and IJmuiden Ver Gamma, which were secured in March 2023.

The HVDC system, serving the Nederwiek 2 offshore wind farm, positioned approximately 95 kilometers off the coast of the Netherlands, aims to support TenneT's goal of connecting 40 GW of offshore wind energy in the German and Dutch North Sea regions.

Seatrium will handle engineering, procurement, construction, transportation, installation, and commissioning of the 2 GW HVDC Offshore Converter Platform, whilst GE Vernova's Grid Solutions will oversee the engineering, procurement, construction, installation, and commissioning of the HVDC converter stations.

The project is slated to commence in June 2024, with commissioning expected by 2031.
