TenneT Offshore Documents
Between now and the end of 2023, TenneT will realise 3.5 GigaWatt (GW) of offshore connections. This will make an important contribution to the Dutch Energy Agreement signed in 2013. Between 2024 and 2030, TenneT will connect another 6.1 GW of offshore wind energy to the Dutch high voltage grid as a result of the Dutch Climate Agreement.
In addition to the 3.5 GW laid down in the ‘Roadmap for offshore wind energy’ (2015), TenneT will connect another 6.1 GW of offshore wind energy to the Dutch high voltage grid according to the ‘Roadmap for offshore wind energy 2030’ (2019). TenneT will establish eight standard alternating current (AC) connections, each with a capacity of 700 MW, up to and including 2026. Wind farms will be built further away from the coast in the IJmuiden Ver wind energy region from 2027. Given the large capacity (2 GW per connection), and to limit the loss of energy during transport, TenneT is carrying out this connection as a direct current (DC) connection.
