This group of Rotterdam-based frontrunners in the offshore wind sector have announced their shared ambition to play a leading role in this industry. Collaboration, sharing success and innovation are three key spearheads that enable the partners to realise projects on a range of different scales.

The Rotterdam Offshore Wind Coalition is proud to present a new video tour of Rotterdam’s port area that shows the various activities and opportunities in offshore wind.

New age for wind power

The European climate objective states that by 2050, an 80 to 95 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions must have been realised compared with 1990. This demands large-scale and radical system changes. Wind farms in the North Sea will play an essential role in the energy transition . The countries around the North Sea - the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Denmark, Ireland, Sweden and Norway - have agreed to work more in partnership in the planning and construction of wind farms at sea.

The Netherlands will be constructing 5 to 7 wind farms in the 2016 -2023 period, which will soon deliver power to 5 million Dutch households. The construction of the wind farms (of at least 700 MW) will bring huge opportunities for the Port of Rotterdam and the offshore wind and other companies.

Economic impact

The economic impact for the Netherlands until 2020 in figures: 3.5 GW in capacity, investments of 20 billion euros and approximately 15,000 to 25,000 new jobs. The coalition sees many opportunities for the Port of Rotterdam and the companies that are involved here in the development of wind power. The Port of Rotterdam offers the right facilities and there is sufficient space for assembly, construction and research, a large potential ‘workforce’ and facilities for training and education.
