The Dutch government did not just single-handedly decide to go forward with zero-subsidy tenders, serious developers tell and show it is possible, and as long as this is the case the government will not provide unnecessary subsidies or other forms of market protection, Ruud de Bruijne from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) said in an interview with Offshore WIND.
Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy, through the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl), will launch a EUR 1.5 million worth tender for the supply of metocean data for the Hollandse Kust Noord (north) Wind Farm Zone on 23 January.
Ørsted, previously DONG Energy, will participate in the Dutch tender for the Hollandse Kust Zuid (South) I and II offshore wind farm zones.

The Netherlands will invite tenders for the Hollandse Kust (zuid/south) III & IV offshore wind sites at the end of this year, Eric Wiebes, the country’s Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy confirmed, adding that the upcoming process will see some changes despite running under the old regulation.
This year Offshore WIND Magazine will be looking at the offshore wind hub ports. These are ports that have either become newly established as offshore wind ports or existing ports already serving the industry that grown beyond most people’s expectations in the past seven years. These hubs can be either a single port or a group of neighbouring ports able to provide the complete base support for range of services from project pre-construction surveys to wind farm operation and maintenance.

When it comes to emerging offshore wind markets, Taiwan, India and the U.S. have been in the spotlight over the last few years and especially in 2018. Nevertheless, a few new areas made the offshore wind map over the last year, beyond those already well known and ready for takeoff. Offshore wind is not only expanding as new markets emerge globally, but also as the countries with existing offshore wind farms and those under development already eye earmarking further areas where offshore wind turbines could be installed.
