World’s largest offshore wind project gets go ahead: More than two million homes in the Netherlands could see their electricity needs covered by the renewable energy produced by what claims to be the ‘world’s largest wind project’.

The green light has been given to Vattenfall for the plant’s final investment decision, which means construction will now proceed.

With a capacity of 1,500 MW and 140 turbines, the Netherlands, Hollandse Kust Zuid offshore wind farm is expected to provide a third of the countries total installed offshore wind capacity.

Senior Vice-President and Head of Business Area Wind in Vattenfall, Gunnar Groebler said, : “Hollandse Kust Zuid will not only provide fossil-free and affordable electricity to our private and business customers.

“It’s also a large infrastructure investment that creates significant economic activity and employment in times of economic uncertainty.”

The project is expected to be fully operational in 2023.
