Offshore wind farms

The expansion of wind farms in the Dutch sector of the North Sea is moving up a gear. In the spring of 2022, the cabinet designated three new areas for the development of wind farms. The original target of 11.5 gigawatts by 2030 will now be almost doubled to 21 GW.

Offshore wind farms move up a gear

To achieve these ambitions, TNO is researching and developing innovative technologies and methodologies for the new generations of wind turbines and wind farms.
