Dutch government to develop 7,000 MW of offshore wind farms in North Sea

The Dutch government plans to develop an additional three offshore wind farms in the North Sea, aiming to add 7,000 MW of wind capacity between 2024 and 2030, The Dutch News reported.

It is estimated the project would involve between €15 billion and €20 billion of investments. The addition of the wind farms will aid the Netherlands in nearing climate change targets that were included in a coalition government's energy agreement that aims for having 40% of the country's energy from offshore turbines by 2030.

Tenders for the new wind farms are to be issued in 2021, with the additional capacity added between 2024 and 2030. According to The Dutch News, citing the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, one wind farm will be located 56 km north of the Wadden Sea island of Schiermonnikoog, while the remaining two will be sited 50 km off the coast at Petten and IJmuiden in Noord-Holland province.

The Netherlands had previously planned five offshore wind farms in North Sea with a total combined capacity of 4,500 MW by 2023 to increase sustainable energy production to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050.
