Shell and Eneco win right to build large Dutch offshore windfarm

By Reuters

AMSTERDAM -A joint venture of Shell and Dutch energy company Eneco has won the right to build an offshore wind farm with a capacity of 756 megawatts (MW) in the North Sea, the Dutch government said on Thursday.

The wind farm, located around 50 kilometres (31 miles) west off the Dutch coast, is expected to be operational in 2026.

The 54 turbines in the offshore windfarm should supply around 3% of the total electricity demand of the Netherlands by 2026, the government said, enough to power around a million households.

Shell and Eneco will receive no subsidies for building the site and won the tender with plans that would limit its impact on nature above and below sea level, the government said.
