Tender issued for survey of Hollandse Kust Nord zone
The Netherlands Enterprise Agency has opened a tender call for a geotechnical survey of the site of the 700MW Hollandse Kust Nord offshore wind zone.
The tender is divided into two lots. The first lot covers seabed piezo cone penetration tests (PCPT) with a target depth of 50 to 60 metres. It is valued at 25% to 35% of the total contract value of €6.5m.

Tenders may be submitted for both lots.
Both contracts are planned to start on 1 April 2018.
