Hollandse Kust Noord Tender Planned for April

The Dutch government is planning to open the tender for the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind farm zone in April 2020.

The tender is scheduled to be launched on 2 April and to run until 30 April by 17:00h local time.

Hollandse Kust Noord is one of three offshore wind areas chosen by the Dutch government to be developed by 2023, as part of the country’s Energy Agreement for sustainable growth.

It consists of two 350MW sites located 18.5km off the west coast of the Netherlands. The project is valued at around EUR 1.4 billion.

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is currently reviewing an application submitted by the Netherlands for the financing of the Hollandse Kust Noord offshore wind project to the tune of EUR 500 million.
