Siemens Gamesa will design and supply the turbines as well as servicing the wind farm for at least 16 years, while Van Oord will deliver the foundations and cables for the project. Construction is to begin in 2019.

According to Reuters, the Netherlands aims to increase renewable energy production and cut greenhouse gas emissions by 49% by 2030.

This will involve wind farms being constructed with a total capacity of 3500 MW in the Dutch part of the North Sea by 2023 as well as an overall increase in wind, solar and biomass plants across the country.
