Vania Goncalves 7 Jul 2016 EUROPE ENERGY & UTILITIES

DONG Energy has been awarded the concession to build the Netherlands’ offshore wind farms Borssele 1 and 2 from Netherlands’ Minister of Economic Affairs.

The wind farms will have a capacity of two times 350MW and will cover the annual power consumption of 1M Dutch households.

The project will be located 22km from the coast of Zeeland province, with a water depth of 14-38m, and covering an area of 128.3sq km.

DONG Energy’s wind power head and executive vice president Samuel Leupold said: “Winning this tender in a highly competitive field of bidders is another proof of our market-leading position and our business model which builds on continued innovation, industrialisation and scale.

“With Borssele 1 and 2, we’re crossing the levelized cost of electricity mark of EUR 100 per MWh for the first time and are reaching a critical industry milestone more than three years ahead of time. This demonstrates the great potential of offshore wind.”

The company will build the wind farms within four years with a flexibility of one year.
