Arcadis and Pondera to Investigate IJmuiden Ver Offshore Link

Dutch transmission system operator TenneT has selected Arcadis and Pondera to carry out an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and provide permit applications with associated investigations for high-voltage connections which will link the IJmuiden Ver wind farm to the grid.

The two subsea high-voltage connections will each have the capacity to bring  2GW of energy to land, the Dutch consultancies said. The financial details of the contract have not been disclosed.

Pondera’s director, Hans Rijntalder, said: “This wind farm makes an important contribution to making the Dutch energy supply more sustainable. The challenge here is to find a good balance between future-proof technical solutions, environmental effects, costs and good spatial integration in consultation with the environment. ”

The 4GW Ijmuiden Ver is one of three sites identified by the Dutch government’s Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap 2030. The three sites have a combined capacity of 6.1GW and are expected to help the Netherlands reach the target of 11.5GW of offshore wind capacity by 2030.

The wind farms at the sites are expected to be commissioned between 2024 and 2030.
