Invitation: Expert meeting ‘Experience from the Borssele offshore wind tenders’ during Offshore Wind Energy in London
During the Wind Europe Offshore exhibition in London (6-8 June 2017), NWEA, Stibbe and Wind Minds are organising a high-level expert meeting ‘Experience from the Borssele offshore wind tenders’ on Wednesday 7 June from 14.30 – 17.30 hrs.
Under a new offshore wind tender system the Netherlands successfully tendered a total of 1.400 MW. Very competitive bids by DONG Energy for Borssele I and II by the consortium of Shell, Van Oord, Eneco and Mitsubishi/DGE for Borssele III and IV have set a new standard which appears to have been enhanced by other countries, such as Germany.
In general, and also driven by the succes of the Borssele tenders, the Netherlands has an ambitious offshore wind pipeline for many years to come.
The expert meeting will focus on the experience from the first two tenders and will include a panel session with representatives of the Netherlands Enterprices Agency (Ministry of Economic Affairs), NWEA, Wind Minds and DONG Energy on the current and future status of offshore tenders in the Netherlands.
