The Netherlands Charts Steady Offshore Wind Path

With 1,484MW of offshore wind capacity currently being built in the Dutch North Sea, the Netherlands is the second largest market in the world for offshore wind projects under construction, according to the Global Offshore Wind Report 2019 by World Forum Offshore Wind (WFO).

The Netherlands is second only to China which currently has around 3.7GW of offshore wind capacity under construction. The United Kingdom, a global leader in terms of operating offshore wind capacity (9.7GW), currently has 714MW of capacity under construction and is third overall. Denmark is fourth with 605MW of offshore wind capacity under construction, and Germany’s 220MW currently being built was enough for the fifth place. WFO’s report defines the projects under construction as the ones where at least one foundation has been installed. The two projects that have propelled the Netherlands to the second place in the global rankings are the 752MW Borssele 1+2 and the 731.5MW Borssele 3 and 4.
