29 Jul 2020: Update 29/07/2020: The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate announced CrossWind C.V., a consortium comprising Shell and Eneco, as the winner of the Hollandse Kust (noord) kavel V tender on 29th July 2020. In 2016, Blauwwind (comprising Shell and Eneco) was awarded the permit to build and operate Borssele 3&4. CrossWind is awarded a 30-year permit to build, operate, and decommission the wind farm, with all necessary consents (e.g. environmental permits) awarded as a package. The 759 MW HKN project, located 18.5 kilometers from the Dutch coast at Egmond aan Zee, will enter operations in 2023 and supply 3.3 TWh per year. CrossWind will install 69 11 MW Siemens Gamesa wind turbines with 200m rotor diameter. The Netherlands Enterprise Agency only received 2 applications for this tender, the other being Blue Champion C.V. (Ørsted). Earlier this year both Vattenfall and EnBW confirmed they would not bid on the tender citing COVID-19 as a contributing reason and as they concentrate efforts on existing portfolios and other markets. Applications were assessed according to: Technical feasibility; Economic feasibility; Financial feasibility; Planning (ability to construct the wind farm within 4 years); Fulfil the requirements of the Wind Farm Site Decisions. Both applicants met these requirements and progressed to the comparative assessment based on: a) The knowledge and experience of the parties involved; b) The quality of the design of the wind farm; c) The capacity of the wind farm; d) The social costs; e) The quality of the inventory and analysis of the risks; f) The quality of the measures to assure Cost Efficiency. For a part of criteria d and criteria e, and f, which accounts for 50% of the total score and are decisive for the weighting, a group of independent experts advised RVO on the scoring. These criteria's are divided into categories: stimulation of innovation benefiting the integration of future wind farms in the Dutch energy system; (financial) risk and mitigation during the construction and the operational period of the wind farm. One aspect which likely gave Crosswind the upper hand was its inclusion of innovative applications. CrossWind will test five demonstrative innovations in the field of energy storage and flexibility, with the possibility of rolling them out on a larger scale at other wind farms in the future. These include: a floating solar farm; battery storage for the short term; turbines that are optimally matched to each other to limit the mutual negative 'wind shadow' effects; 'green hydrogen' made by electrolysis as another storage technique and the combination of these individual measures together to guarantee a continuous power supply, regardless of the wind situation. Shell intends to build a green hydrogen factory on the Tweede Maasvlakte at a site designated by the Port of Rotterdam for a 2 GW conversion park and with NortH2 (A green hydrogen project establish by a consortium of Gasunie, Groningen Seaports and Shell which aims to generate 3 to 4 GW of wind energy for hydrogen production by 2030, and possibly 10 GW in 2040). This will create a new value chain which incorporates offshore wind and hydrogen. The hydrogen plant will have a capacity of around 200 MW. The final investment decision for the hydrogen plant has not been taken yet. Shell intends to start operations by 2023 to produce about 50,000 – 60,000 kg of hydrogen per day. The green hydrogen produced will initially be used at the Shell refinery in Pernis to decarbonise the production of fuels such as by running its trucks on green hydrogen. update 17/04/20: Decision expected 13 weeks after the closure of the tender on 30th April 2020. RVO do not envisage delays in the evaluation of the expected applications due to COVID-19 and expect an award decision within 13 weeks after closing of the tender.
