In 2023, the Hollandse Kust (north) offshore wind farm is scheduled to be taken into use by the CrossWind development consortium. Eneco, one of the partners in this consortium, has recently joined the Amsterdam IJmuiden Offshore Ports (AYOP) association to seek cooperation with regional players in preparation for the future wind farm.

In July this year, Eneco and Shell won the tender for the Hollandse Kust (noord) offshore wind farm zone, located 18.5 kilometers from the Dutch coast at Egmond aan Zee. The wind farm will have a total installed capacity of 759 MW. A total of 69 Siemens Gamesa wind turbines with each a capacity of 11 MW will supply at least 3.3 TWh per year.

Ruben Dijkstra, director of Offshore Wind: “Eneco has already been working well with AYOP in various offshore wind farm projects. As part of CrossWind we are now looking to make a good start to realising the Hollandse Kust Noord wind farm while further strengthening our cooperation with the region. This is where our membership of AYOP comes in, enabling us to intensify our relationships based on mutual trust.”

The more than 85 members of AYOP can be of added value in various ways in the construction and maintenance of wind farms, such as in mapping the seabed and the storage and transfer of rotor blades, cables and turbines. In addition, partners of AYOP can also support in relocating employees to the work area, but also in finding qualified personnel.

In addition to the wind farm yet to be built, Eneco also wants to seek cooperation with regional players for the maintenance and operation of its existing wind farms. Eneco Wind is already located in IJmuiden with a maintenance base for the offshore wind farms Eneco Luchterduinen and Prinses Amaliawindpark. On land, Eneco Wind is active in the development of a new Spuisluis wind farm project along the North Sea Canal and, together with Port of Amsterdam, they own the Afrikahaven wind farm in the Western port area.
