Hollandia Offshore and Croonwolter&dros: Powerful offer for offshore wind farms
Hollandia Offshore and Croonwolter&dros will from now on be offering operators of offshore wind farms an ‘all-inclusive package. As a collaborative partnership with a wealth experience they can provide specialised steelwork and the appropriate installation technology. In so doing so, they can respond to the market demand for an all-inclusive service. ‘Winner takes all’: the idea that the strongest partnerships succeed in securing get the orders. Thanks to their financial strength, know-how and experience Hollandia and Croonwolter&dros have forged one of the strongest partnerships in the marketplace.
New offshore wind farms are springing up wherever you look around the North Sea and the Baltic. The market is booming and developing rapidly; operators are really getting to grips with the transition towards sustainable energy. Rotterdam-based companies in offshore services and products have a long tradition in gas and oil platforms. ‘A closely-knit ecosystem of suppliers, sub-contractors and service providers has emerged. As all the required specialisations are available close together, this “cluster” can operate very efficiently on the international market,’ explains managing director Nico Noorlander of Hollandia Offshore. ‘As investments in the oil and gas industries have been slashed in the past few years, this sector has focused on foreign offshore wind farms. It has been successful in that respect. Next is the Dutch market, which is seeing substantial growth in that area at the moment.’
Port of Rotterdam contracted Hollandia Infra to build the new Radar Tower on Maasvlakte 2. The new tower will have a height of about 70 meter.
After a european tender procedure the Rotterdam port authorities selected the sustainable design of Hollandia Infra en architect Syb van Breda.
Hollandia Infra will be main contractor for this challenging project.
At the moment a 220 tons Radial Sector Gate for the Ipswich Tidal Barrier is under construction at the workshop of Hollandia Infra.
With the delivery of the British Airways i360, Hollandia Infra has added a new iconic steel structure to its track record of eye catching projects in the UK; and a worthy successor to the popular London Eye, opened in 2000.
Hollandia Structures BV is nominated for the Dutch National Steelprice 2016 with project BusStation IJssei Amsterdam.
The archconstruction with a span of 60 mtr has a length of 360 mtr and is situated between Amsterdam Central Station and the river 'het IJ'.
The structure was erected in 3 phases, the last in 2015.
Hollandia Structures has been working on the different phases for the Whitechapel Station (C512) project in London since the beginning of the works in 2013.
In the weekend of 28th of July 2016 another phase was erected successfully by our Everest erection team during the pre-arranged possession hours.
compliments to the team!
During the last months a lot of work have been done at the Hollandia Infra yard for this special bascule bridge.

On May 31 2016, Hollandia Offshore B.V. and Energinet.dk, the Danish Transmission System Operator, signed the contract for the engineering, procurement and commissioning of the Kriegers Flak substations. The project comprises two unmanned substations which are due for delivery to the installation site in April 2018. Commissioning will take place in April and May of 2018.
The Kriegers Flak substations will be installed in the Danish sector of the Baltic Sea. The wind farm consists of 2 sections, each with its own substation. The west section, Kriegers Flak A, will have a total capacity of 200MW. The east section, Kriegers Flak B, will have a total capacity of 400MW. The Kriegers Flak B substation will also serve as the support for the KFE module which is part of the so called Combined Grid Solution project which is run by Energinet.dk and the German transmission systems operator 50 Hertz. The Combined Grid Solution project is funded with up to EUR 150 million from the European Energy Programme for Recovery.
The scope of works includes transport to the offshore site and commissioning. Hollandia Offshore will undertake the work together with Croonwolter&dros who will be responsible for the design, procurement and installation of the utility systems such as the low voltage systems, the fire fighting systems and the HVAC.
The project will be executed at the yard of Hollandia Offshore in Krimpen aan den IJssel which is situated at the banks of two major rivers, close to the main port of Rotterdam. Most of the fabrication will take place in a controlled workshop environment in one of the recently built fabrication shops.
Nico Noorlander, Managing Director of Hollandia Offshore, states: “We are very pleased that we have been awarded this challenging contract for the Kriegers Flak substations. We are confident that we are able to continue the excellent working relationship with our client Energinet.dk for which we recently delivered the jacket for the Horns Rev C substation.”
On the instruction of Joint Venture Volker Stevin-Boskalis-Atkins, Hollandia Infra delivers the steel rising sector gate for the Ipswich Tidal Barrier . The steel weight of this gate amounts to 200 ton.

Finally, after 4 months of hard work, the crane jib of the Stanislav Yudin Main crane left the Hollandia premises, ready to be installed on the vessel.
Due to potential future projects Seaway Heavy Lifting has planned an upgrade of the crane jib by introducing a second Main
Hoist (lifting capacity 1200mt) in between the existing Main Hoist and Auxiliary hoist. In addition to that upgrade the Auxiliary Hoist is upgraded to 750mt (initial limitation at 660mt).
Hollandia Scope of Work is divided into the following separated items:
- Fabrication and assembly of the new Jib (at Hollandia premises);
- Replacement of the Jib assembly on board of HLV Stanislav Yudin at Rhenus Deep Sea Terminal, Port of Rotterdam.
- Certification of the upgraded and replaced Jib assembly according DNV Standard for Certification 2.22 Lifting Appliances, edition 2013.
Delivering according schedule was the main challenge during this project. Leadtime was very critical and all resources were needed to maintain the delivery date. On 20-01-2016 the load-out was planned and on that same day Hollandia received an acceptance from Seaway Heavy Lifting and DNV GL to start with the installation phase.
The installation phase takes maximum 28 days at the Rhenus Deep Sea Terminal at the Port of Rotterdam. Scope of work will be, removal of old jib and installation of new jib in cooperation with Sarens who will perform the lifting operations.
On 19 februari 2016 final approval of the installation is planned.
Hollandia showed her capability to handle and collaborate in a very good manner to reach expected delivery dates and maintain clients satisfactory.
