Soil support surveys to help wind farm developers

The Netherlands Enterprise Agency ( awarded a contract for support for soil investigations at an offshore wind farm.

The contract was awarded to BLIX and partners for support to be carried out at the offshore wind farm zone
Hollandse Kust West. This entails management of the geophysical survey, the geotechnical survey and the morphodynamical study. In this current assignment BLIX will also perform the quality check of the soil investigations.

The results will form an information package for developers about the soil, water and wind conditions in the wind farm zones as preparation for the tender.

Since 2014 BLIX has supported in the field of contract and project management for collecting site data. Previously BLIX was involved in offshore wind zones
Borssele, Hollandse Kust Zuid and Hollandse Kust Noord.

BLIX is working together with Reynolds International, Wind Support, RPS, Periplus and Marine Geological Advice.

Matté Brijder, Project Manager of RVO: ”We’re glad that BLIX supports us again. They put together a balanced team of experts for the soil investigations of Hollandse Kust West. We are confident we, together with BLIX, will improve the quality of the data set for developers again.”

The Dutch Government recently presented the Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap 2024-2030, which lays out the schedule for the development of 7GW new offshore wind capacity. The Roadmap contains three new wind farm zones:
Hollandse Kust West, Ten noorden van de Wadden, and IJmuiden-Ver.
