Hollandse Kust Zuid III & IV Winner Soon to Be Revealed

The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy is set to reveal the winner of the Hollandse Kust (Zuid) III & IV tender on 10 July.

The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) opened the tender to develop the Hollandse Kust (Zuid) III and IV sites without government subsidies on 1 March.

The zero-subsidy round, which closed on 14 March, attracted bids from major developers such as Ørsted, VattenfallEngie, and the Witwind consortium of Shell, Van Oord and Eneco.

Hollandse Kust (Zuid) III and IV will comprise two offshore wind farms with an individual capacity of between 342MW and 380MW. The offshore wind projects will be situated 20km off the coast of The Hague.

To remind, Vattenfall won the tender last year to build Hollandse Kust (Zuid) I & II, the first Dutch non-subsidised offshore wind farm.
