Consultation 2GW HVDC offshore grid connection system – Documentation
Future offshore wind turbines in the wind farm zone 'IJmuiden Ver' will be connected through 66 kV “inter-array” cables to an offshore 2000 MW AC/DC converterstation from TenneT. The offshore converterstation will be based on HVDC technology. Using 2 GW high voltage (525 kV) export cables the electricity is transported to shore where the DC is converted back to AC again.
To ensure the 2 GW standard has an optimal design from a system perspective TenneT has initiated a consultation process with relevant stakeholders on all relevant interfaces with offshore wind farm developers (OWFs). The documentation below contains the result of this consultation process. The consultation process itself is described in the first file: the concluding report. The position papers per topic include a more in-depth description and substantiation of the positions.
The RVO website provides information about the tender and permit to develop IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone (IJVWFS).
On offshorewind.rvo.nl you can find all available site data on soil, wind & water conditions and obstructions on IJVWFS
General questions can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This concluding report describes the consultation process and it contains the result: a summary of the consulted design options and the final positions on these topics. This report can be used as a reference work of the consultation process. To facilitate readers a summary of the position papers has been added per topic. These summaries are meant to aid in understanding the background of the positions but have not been aligned in the consultation process. The final positions for each topic stem directly from the position papers which have been established in collaboration with all participating stakeholders.Download Download
