The wind farms, which are located 22km off the coast of Zeeland, are expected to generate the equivalent of the electricity used by approximately 825,000 households.
The members of the winning consortium are primarily Netherlands-based. They said that the win is a confirmation of the consortium's commitment to the role that offshore wind needs to play in pushing forward an energy transition in the Netherlands. Van Oord said that members of the consortium expect that work for the build and exploitation of Borssele III and IV will have a positive impact on local economy.
The preferred supplier for the wind turbines is MHI Vestas Offshore Wind.
