Consortium excited with winning tender for Borssele III&IV

 

The consortium of Eneco, Diamond Generating Europe (100% subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation), Shell and Van Oord is pleased and honoured to have won the tender for the construction and operation of Dutch offshore windfarms Borssele III & IV. The preferred supplier for the wind turbines is MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.

Winning the tender is a confirmation that the primarily Dutch based members of the consortium are committed and determined to push the energy transition forward in the Netherlands and the important role that offshore wind needs to play in it. Members of the consortium expect that work for the build and exploitation of Borssele III & IV will have a positive impact on local economy. The consortium will not disclose any further details regarding its bid.

Windfarms Borssele III & IV are expected to generate more than 3.200 GWh per annum, the equivalent of the electricity used by approximately 825.000 households. The windfarms are located 22 kilometres out of the coast of Zeeland in The Netherlands.
