The wind farm is in the North Sea, 18-36 kilometers off the Dutch coast between the towns of Scheveningen and Zandvoort.
 
The 139 turbines, with a capacity of 11MW each, have a total capacity of 1.5 GW. Hollandse Kust Zuid is owned by Vattenfall, BASF, and Allianz.  The wind farm is expected to be fully operational in 2024 and will be serviced out of the port of IJmuiden. Three turbines are fitted with recently developed recyclable blades. The resin used to ‘glue’ blades together will be easier to dissolve after the working life of the turbines, making it easier to disseminate the blades and reuse the different elements.
