GE Vernova, Seatrium Awarded Third HVDC Contract for TenneT Netherlands Project


GE Vernova and Seatrium have been awarded a third contract by TenneT for the construction of a 2 GW HVDC electric offshore transmission system in the Netherlands. 

The project is slated to begin this month, with commissioning expected by 2031.

This contract is part of the five-year framework cooperation agreement with TenneT announced by the GE Vernova-Seatrium consortium last March covering three projects: IJmuiden Ver Beta, IJmuiden Ver Gamma and Nederwiek 2. 

The current contract is for Nederwiek 2, TenneT’s third project with the consortium, located approximately 95 kilometers off the Netherlands coast.

GE Vernova’s Grid Solutions, the consortium leader, will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of the HVDC converter stations. Seatrium’s scope of work will include the engineering, procurement, construction, transportation, installation and commissioning of the 2 GW HVDC offshore converter platform.

“TenneT is playing a crucial role in the energy transition, and we are honored to support their efforts with our advanced HVDC system,” says GE Vernova’s Johan Bindele.

“GE Vernova is dedicated to decarbonizing and electrifying the world, and the TenneT projects exemplify our commitment to advancing renewable energy infrastructure.”
