Magnus added: "The Netherlands is an important market for us and this will be one of our biggest offshore projects. We are looking forward to contribute with this project to the transformation of the Dutch energy system.”

“Winning the bid for Hollandse Kust Zuid 3&4 is a result of our continuous efforts along our entire value chain and the solid track record and portfolio approach of our company. Adding to that, working collaboratively with our partners in the supply chain has enabled us to hand in a state-of-the-art proposal for this project. We can bundle now the projects Hollandse Kust Zuid 1&2 and 3&4 which is a great advantage leading to further optimization and synergies”, says Gunnar Groebler, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Area Wind of Vattenfall.
