BLIX to Work on Dutch Offshore Wind Farm Zone

The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) has awarded a contract to BLIX Consultancy for soil site characterisation work for the Doordewind Wind Farm Zone (WFZ).

Together with dGB Earth Sciences and GEO2 Engineering, BLIX Consultancy is supporting RVO to provide detailed information on the site conditions at Doordewind WFZ, which could be used for the future tendering and development of this area.

The team will provide in-depth geophysical, geotechnical, morphodynamical, and ground modelling expert support throughout the various stages of the project.

In April, RVO issued contract notices seeking services for the development of offshore wind farms in the Doordewind WFZ.

RVO plans to publish a tender around the end of May or the beginning of June 2023 to conclude contracts with one or more tenderers to carry out geophysical investigations at the wind farm zone.

In June 2022, the Government disclosed the tendering timelines and locations for nine offshore wind projects with a combined capacity of up to 13.4 GW, which includes a previously identified area, on top of the new ones.
