Hollandse Kust Zuid – First project of its kind

The Dutch government stated that striving for a CO2 reduction conform the Paris climate agreement, a 4.5GW suppliance in wind energy will be needed by the end of 2023. HKZ will supply 1,5GW to the Netherlands. The park will consist of 140  11MW turbines with a tip height of 250 meters, making HKZ unique and one of its kind. 

The site is situated 18 kilometres off the Dutch coast, in between The Haque and Zandvoort. The weather conditions at this location will be ideal for generating renewable energy all year round. Furthermore, the distance, limited depth, and right seabed resulted in the bid by Vattenfall to construct its offshore wind farm over here.  

Oceanwide is proud to contribute in the search for the right professionals, which will bring this wind farm up and running and supply the maintenance in the upcoming years.
