Noordzeker will build nature inclusive wind park in the North Sea

June 11, 2024

Noordzeker, an initiative of pension fund ABP, in cooperation with asset manager APG, and developer SSE Renewables, has been selected to build a new wind farm in the North Sea with a capacity of about 2 GW, enough to green 8% of current Dutch electricity demand. The wind farm will be built 62 kilometers off the Dutch coast near IJmuiden. The award for the new wind farm concerns the IJmuiden Ver Alpha tender. This tender focuses on the ecology of the park to be built. Noordzeker aims to provide large-scale renewable energy at an attractive price, with a minimal ecological footprint and a positive impact on biodiversity.
