BLIX Consultancy Wins Tender for Site Characterization Expert Support Soil  for Doordewind Wind Farm Zone
The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland, RVO) has awarded
BLIX Consultancy (an AFRY company) as the contractor for soil site characterization expert support
for Doordewind Wind Farm Zone (WFZ). Together with dGB Earth Sciences and GEO2 Engineering,
BLIX Consultancy is supporting RVO to provide detailed information on the site conditions at
Doordewind WFZ, which can be used for the future tendering and development of this area.
The tender called for a team of experts, including a lead expert to optimize the interface between
RVO, specialist experts, and future contractors. The expert team will provide in-depth geophysical,
geotechnical, morphodynamical, and ground modelling expert support throughout the various stages
of the project.

BLIX Consultancy and their partners are thrilled to be awarded the contract for soil investigations.

Senior consultant offshore wind, Jeroen Godtschalk: "As we have already been working with RVO
for almost 10 years, we are excited to continue to move the offshore wind business forward together.
We believe in providing quality expert support, and our team is ready to bring all their experience into
the preparations of this new Wind Farm Zone.”

BLIX Consultancy and their partners are enthusiastic about collaborating with RVO to guarantee that
the soil investigations meet the highest standards. Enabling the forthcoming Doordewind WFZ to be
developed and operate in an optimal way will directly contribute to the 2030 climate goals of the
Dutch Government.
