For Reddyn, Joulz Energy Solutions is currently working on the Middenmeer project as the main contractor. Middenmeer is a new 150kV/20kV substation in the Wieringermeer region.

Substation? No idea!
Middenmeer substation. “A big new substation we’re building to connect a large number of new wind farms, transmitting wind power to the rest of the country. That is what I tell family and friends who want to know what my job is”, says Michael van Leeuwen, Lead Engineer at Liandon. “Many people have no idea what I do for a living. That’s why I’m happy to be able to use images to show the progress we’re making with the Middenmeer substation.
Same objective, different background
Michael: “When I take a shower in the morning, I think about the different activities and coordination for the Middenmeer project I will be involved in that day, such as reviewing the many designs together with Joulz. Joulz is our partner in the construction of the substation.”
Constructing a substation requires a project team, consisting of project managers, engineers, builders and technicians. But that is not as self-evident as it sounds. For one thing, the energy transition is giving rise to a lot of additional work. So much, in fact, that we’ll be needing quite a few extra hands.
Michael: “The drive and commitment of the various staff members, from both Liandon and Joulz, contributing to this project really fire me up. The collaboration is going very smoothly because we’re all passionate about working on a fantastic project.
Deon van Kuijeren, chief foreman at Joulz, adds:
“The collaboration is working well, lines of communication are short and everyone is very approachable. I enjoy dealing with unforeseen situations and finding solutions, and I draw energy from a positive atmosphere at a building site. When I go on rounds at the site, it’s with a sense of pride. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished together.”
