Ørsted reports the company has submitted a bid to the Dutch authorities for the Holland Coast North wind farm.

Ørsted’s bid includes innovative technologies that will help integrate ever larger amounts of offshore wind in the Dutch energy system, and Ørsted’s Board of Directors has already approved the final investment decision for the project.

Martin Neubert, Executive Vice President and CEO of Ørsted Offshore, says, “The Netherlands has ambitious climate targets for both the energy and industrial sectors and is an important market to us. We deliver a strong bid with a high degree of risk mitigation. We commend the Dutch government for holding on to its tender timelines and its renewable energy targets during a time of global uncertainty. We urge governments worldwide to continue the transition from black to green energy at full speed in order to fight climate change and promote sustainable investment in economic growth and job creation.”

Steven Engels, Country Manager for Ørsted in the Netherlands, says, “The construction of our Borssele 1 & 2 Offshore Wind Farm is so far going as planned, and we expect that Borssele 1 & 2 will be capable of generating enough green energy to power one million Dutch households later this year. We deliver on our commitments and we provide certainty. Ørsted is a strong partner for the Dutch energy transition, providing large-scale, cost-competitive renewable power linked to an ambitious agenda on renewable hydrogen.”
