RWE plans new wind farms off the coast of the Netherlands  

RWE Innogy and RWE Energy Nederland have jointly submitted proposals to the Dutch authorities to build at least two major offshore wind farms in the Netherlands. The total volume of 2000MW is thought to represent one of the largest offshore wind development projects in the world.

RWE´s proposals would make a significant contribution to the Dutch Government’s target for energy generation from wind farms of 6000MW by 2020. The Netherlands currently has 108 MW in offshore wind farm capacity.

The wind farms are spread over two locations. The first location is called Tromp, where 1150MW of capacity is proposed 64 km off the coast of Ijmuiden in a water depth of approximately 26 metres and would not be visible from shore. The full details of the second location will be announced at a later date. We expect the first licenses to be granted within the next two to three years.

Kevin McCullough, COO of RWE Innogy: “This opportunity for growth into the Netherlands forms part of our European renewable energy expansion plans. RWE has committed to spend about 1 billion Euros per year on such projects. ”
