CrossWind, a consortium comprising Shell and Eneco, is going to build and operate the third unsubsidized wind farm in the Dutch North Sea. The wind farm will be in the Hollandse Kust (noord) Wind Farm Zone (HKNWFZ).
The wind farm will have a capacity of over 750 MW and its construction will mean that by 2023, offshore wind power will provide 16% of the Netherlands’ electricity needs.
In 2016, Blauwwind (comprising Shell and Eneco) was awarded the permit to build and operate sites III en IV in the Borssele Wind Farm Zone. This wind farm is currently under construction.
