SSE and partners have been selected by the Dutch authorities to progress with their bid in the competitive 2GW Alpha offshore wind tender site in the IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone in the Netherlands. The consortium, known as Noordzeker, will now refine the project ahead of a decision on whether to progress development, which is required by July 2024. If the project moves forward, it could have an installed capacity of around 2GW, meeting approximately 7% of the current Dutch electricity demand. The consortium's proposal includes measures to reduce and mitigate ecological impacts while increasing biodiversity, aligning with the Dutch Government's focus on making a positive contribution to nature. This approach aims to ensure offshore wind development is in harmony with the surrounding ecosystem while contributing to the Netherlands' decarbonization and security of supply.
