Vattenfall has decided to participate in the offshore wind tender in the Dutch part of the North Sea, the first non-subsidized tender in the world.
The North Sea and in particular the ‘Hollandse Kust Zuid’ site has good wind conditions and there are significant synergies to Vattenfall’s nearby offshore windfarm Egmond aan Zee. In addition, the Dutch tender, which has to be realised in 2022, fits well with Vattenfall’s North Sea wind farm pipeline and can therefore easily be incorporated in the current procurement and execution strategy. Hollandse Kust Zuid is located 22,2 km off the west coast of the Netherlands and consists of two sites, each large enough to install between 342 –380MW. The water depth is between 17 and 28 metres.
