KUALA LUMPUR: Eversendai Corp Bhd has cut first steel for the construction of its first European offshore wind renewable project intended for Petrofac and Holland’s transmission system operator TenneT.

In a statement yesterday, Eversendai said its unit Eversendai Offshore will be carrying out the engineering and fabrication of the six-leg jacket structure for Hollandse Kust Zuid Alpha in its 550m waterfront and 200,000 sq m fabrication yard in RAK Maritime City, Ras Al Khaimah, the United Arab Emirates.

It said the jacket will be part of a wind farm in Europe’s North Sea’s Hollandse Kust Zuid grid connection in the Netherlands.

Eversendai Offshore chief executive officer Narish Nathan said the project is a further testament to Eversendai’s diversification strategy.

“This breakthrough will provide further opportunities in the European offshore wind renewables sector, growing significantly and further growth is expected in future,” he said.
