Shell and Eneco win bid to develop wind power in Netherlands

Baltic Power offshore wind project

Shell and Eneco have won the tender to build an offshore wind farm at Hollandse Kust (west) lot VI in the Netherlands.

The wind power project will have an installed capacity of 760 MW and will be located approximately 53 kilometres off the Dutch coast from the town of IJmuiden. The new wind farm will be operational in 2026.

Ecowende, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco, aims to set a new ecological benchmark for the development and construction of wind farms in the North Sea and to enable offshore wind farms to have a net positive impact on nature.
