Offshore NL
In September 2013, over 40 parties in The Netherlands agreed on the Energieakkoord, setting targets and intentions for the transition to a more renewable energy supply. This agreement also sets targets for offshore wind development. The decision to realize 3500 MW of offshore wind energy has been taken and TenneT has been appointed as offshore grid operator. The technical concept (eg. standard platforms) has been developed, the first projects are in the construction phase and the preparation for the other projects (spatial, permits, procurement) is ongoing. The first grid connection system will be operational in August 2019 (Borssele Alpha). The fifth grid connection system has to be operational in March 2023. Currently the ambition of the government is to realize substantially more offshore wind energy after 2023. A roll-out strategy is being prepared for the medium term (IJmuiden-ver) and the Long Term (North Sea Wind Power Hub) developments and more grid connection projects are therefore envisaged.

The performance unit Offshore NL (NLO) is responsible for the preparation and realization of the connections of the offshore wind farms as mentioned in the Energieakkoord, but also for the grid connection development for the further future. A great opportunity for people who are willing and able to work and build in a dynamic and innovative environment.
