Energy infrastructure is one of the hottest topics of our time. VolkerWessels develops, builds and maintains these 'lifelines' of the Netherlands. We design and implement the energy infrastructure of the Netherlands and ensure that we can facilitate the energy transition together with our clients. Pipelines, cables and drillings for the transport of residual heat, steam, gas, oil, water and electricity. Our cables and pipelines cross rural and urban areas, rivers, railroad tracks and freeways with the aid of directional drilling.
Sustainable transport via pipelines
Visser & Smit Hanab Pipelines & Industry, part of VolkerWessels, is the specialist in the field of underground and above-ground transport pipelines and installations. Underground transport by pipeline is sustainable transport; no traffic on the road or water and not visible or taking up space in our Dutch landscape. Pipelines & Industry also provides the above-ground pipeline work and installations for various industrial clients.
Distribution networks for locally generated power
The Netherlands is becoming more sustainable. VolkerWessels 'guides' clients through the landscape of solar panels and wind turbines. Our integral service provision means that we can assist with everything from subsidies, design and procurement, to construction and (long-term) maintenance. We also have extensive experience in making distribution networks suitable for locally generated power. Whether this involves increasing the capacity of the network or installing smart energy meters that coordinate energy production and consumption.
The world of high voltage
The energy world is becoming more complex and is transforming rapidly. There is a growing demand for electricity to replace fossil fuels, which means an enormous expansion of the current quality and capacity of the grid. This energy transition calls for a new service. VolkerWessels company Visser & Smit Hanab, with its Business Unit Volker Energy Solutions, offers an integrated approach to this with a complete service package for future-proof energy supplies in the field of high voltage. We devise, build and maintain high-voltage substations, including the entire cable route.
From wind to electricity
In the energy agreement it was agreed that by 2030 32% of the Dutch energy supply should come from renewable energy sources. Four large offshore wind farms will therefore be constructed off the coast of Zeeland. The power generated there will come ashore in Borssele via OHVS Alpha and Beta,...
