In September 2013, over 40 parties in The Netherlands agreed on the Energieakkoord, setting targets and intentions for the transition to a more renewable energy supply. This agreement also sets targets for offshore wind development. In June 2014 the Dutch government confirmed the decision for an offshore grid. The decision to realize 3500 MW of offshore wind energy has been taken in the law 'Wind op Zee" and TenneT has been appointed as the offshore grid operator. The technical concept (eg. standard platforms) has been developed and the realisation of the first projects (Borssele Alpha and Beta) is ongoing. Since this year the first Dutch offshore substation, Borssele Alpha, is operational, with 4 additional offshore substations following from 2020 through 2023. Earlier this year, the Dutch government announced another 7GW of offshore wind capacity to be realized by 2030. The 'Offshore NL' department (NLO) is responsible to initiate, prepare and realize the connections of the offshore wind farms in the Dutch part of the North Sea. A great opportunity for people who are willing and able to work and build in a dynamic and innovative environment.
