Located around 53km from the Dutch coast, the two HKW sites have a combined capacity of nearly 1.5GW.
Ørsted Continental Europe region head Rasmus Errboe said: “We are very pleased with our partnership with TotalEnergies for the upcoming Dutch tenders.
“With our joint bids, we want to ensure the Netherlands can accelerate its offshore wind build-out towards 2030 and beyond, in a state-of-the-art ecologically friendly manner and as part of an integrated energy system.
“Ørsted looks forward to making a significant contribution to the energy transition in the Netherlands, together with TotalEnergies.”
Under their partnership, the two companies aim to combine their knowledge of renewable energy and the offshore wind segment to allow the Netherlands to generate 70GW of offshore wind energy by 2050.
Through a green energy and hydrogen production investment programme, TotalEnergies intends to decarbonise its industrial activities in the Zeeland province.
Zeeland is due to come online by 2027 with 600MW of electrolysis capacity. The cluster will be powered entirely by the Holland Coast West wind farm.
TotalEnergies will also aim to ensure the stability of the Netherlands’ national power grid.
TotalEnergies Offshore Wind vice-president Olivier Terneaud said: “The energy transition brings new challenges, both in terms of environmental impact and integration of green energy into the power system.
“It’s precisely to meet these challenges that we’re participating in these tenders, together with Ørsted, to support the energy transition in the Netherlands, where we draw on more than half a century of Dutch offshore operational experience to be a reliable energy partner.”
