The Anonymous Widower

First-Ever Subsidy-Free Offshore Wind Farm Halfway Done

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on offshoreWIND.biz.

These three paragraphs, outline the project.

Cadeler’s wind turbine installation vessel Wind Osprey has installed the 70th Siemens Gamesa 11 MW wind turbine at the 1.5 GW Hollandse Kust Zuid offshore wind farm in the Dutch North Sea.

The installation of the 70th turbine marks the halfway milestone on the 140-turbine project, Cadeler said.

Once fully installed and commissioned in the summer of 2023, Hollandse Kust Zuid will become the largest operating offshore wind farm, as well as the first one built without government subsidies.

I very much believe that in the near future many, if not all wind farms will be built without subsidy.
