DONG Energy and Zeeland Seaports have agreed to develop a specific location in Vlissingen Buitenhaven in the coming months, after which a final contract will be signed. This will happen as soon as both parties reach an agreement on the terms and conditions.
Borssele 1&2 will be one of the largest wind farms in the world (752 MW) and requires a good base for maintaining and operating the wind farm. DONG Energy has previously developed similar maintenance bases in the UK, Germany, and Denmark.
“We have been welcomed with open arms in Zeeland after winning the tender for Borssele 1 & 2,”said Jasper Vis, Country Manager for DONG Energy Netherlands. “We look forward to settling in the province of Zeeland and contributing to further regional economic development and long-term employment.”
Claus Bøjle Møller, Programme Director for Borssele 1&2 at DONG Energy added: “Vlissingen offers an excellent location for our O&M base in terms of onshore and offshore logistics, as well as maritime services for the construction and operation of our new wind farm.”
