Grontmij and Pondera launch offshore wind parks Borssele in the Netherlands

The Ministry of Economic Affairs has asked consulting and engineering agency Grontmij and Pondera Consult to create an Environmental Impact Assessment and Appropriate Assessment for the allocation of plots in the offshore wind energy area Borssele. This is the first offshore wind energy project which is being carried out in accordance with the new bill for “Wind Energy at Sea”.

The “Wind Energy at Sea” bill makes it easier to accelerate and develop wind energy at sea by making permits more flexible. A “plot decree” determines where and under what conditions a wind park can be built without making any demands of the techniques selected. The plot decree integrates soil testing and tests for various nature aspects. A tender with permit and subsidy allocation will follow after the plot decree.
