An agreement will be signed with a tenderer who is able to carry out the certification of various site studies that will be performed at the offshore wind farm zones Hollandse Kust Zuid (South Holland Coast) and Hollandse Kust Noord (North Holland Coast), the Ministry said.

Deadline for submitting bids is 18 January, 2016.

The Netherlands has six offshore wind sites in the pipeline at the two zones: four at Hollandse Kust Zuid, and two at Hollandse Kust Noord.

Each of the sites at the wind farm zones can accommodate 350 MW. TenneT will build grid connections and construct offshore substations.

The subsidy and permit tender for sites Hollandse Kust (Zuid) I & II is planned to open in 2017, and Hollandse Kust (Noord) is scheduled for the process in 2019.
