Dates revealed for Dutch offshore tender
The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) has launched the tender process for the Borssele I and II wind farms (BWF I and II) projects, each of about 350 MW.
Wind Farm Zone Borssele, 344 km2 in total, is divided into 5 sites. Sites I, II and IV can accommodate 350 MW plus 30 MW overplanting. Site III can accommodate 320 MW plus 30 MW overplanting. Site V is for innovations and can accommodate 20 MW.
Interested parties must submit their proposals on or before May 12.
The tender process to develop the 320-MW Borssele III and 350-MW Borssele IV is scheduled to be issued in September.
Last month we reported that Dutch Senate confirmed TenneT, the national electricity transmission system operator of the Netherlands and in large part of Germany, as the developer and operator of the Dutch offshore grid.
TenneT will build five identical platforms with a total capacity of 3,500 MW to transport the wind energy from the offshore Dutch sector of the North Sea to the onshore grid.
