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.
BLIX Consultancy and Pondera Consult have carried out a study on the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) of future offshore wind farm sites in the Netherlands.
The Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Catapult has added three new categories under the Operations & Maintenance and Windfarm Lifecycle challenge area in Offshore Wind Innovation Hub’s (OWIH) guide.
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.
International recruitment company Atlas Professionals has won a tender to produce an in-depth report for the Topsector Energy about employment opportunities in the Dutch offshore wind industry.
There are no local content requirements in offshore wind tenders in the Netherlands because the Dutch government sees competition as key to achieving cost reductions, Ruud de Bruijne, Project Manager Offshore Wind Energy at the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) said during the Offshore WIND Conference in Amsterdam.
The Offshore Wind Innovation Hub (OWIH) has launched a guide to the future priorities and opportunities for innovation that will help the sector achieve the goal of having 30GW of offshore wind capacity in the UK by 2030.
Arcadis and Pondera Consult will carry out a strategic study into the various possibilities to transport the energy from future large-scale offshore wind farms in the Dutch North Sea to the national grid.
