Ørsted to Compete for Hollandse Kust Zuid I and II

Ørsted, previously DONG Energy, will participate in the Dutch tender for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (South) I and II offshore wind farm zones.

Ørsted has already issued a tender for cable lay services at the site. If the developer does not win the tender, the contract will be cancelled.

In October, the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs published the Ministerial Order for permitting offshore wind energy for the site, with the application period starting on 15 December and closing on 21 December.

The contract for the Hollandse Kust Zuid site I and II is expected to be awarded in the first quarter of 2018.

One permit is granted for each wind farm site, with applications allowed to be made for a permit for each of the two wind farm sites. The total installed capacity will be around 700MW, with 342MW minimum for each of the two sites and 380MW maximum.

The projects planned under the Dutch Government’s current offshore wind programme include 2,100MW at the Hollandse Kust zones. Of this, 1,400MW is planned in the Hollandse Kust Zuid: 700MW at sites I and II, and further 700MW at sites III and IV.  An additional 700MW is planned to be tendered in 2019 in the Hollandse Kust Noord zone.

TenneT will build the grid connections and construct two offshore substations at the Hollandse Kust Zuid wind farm zone. According to current plans, the four wind farms will be connected to the grid between 2018 and 2021.
