Vattenfall has decided to participate in the offshore wind tender in the Dutch part of the North Sea, the first non-subsidized tender in the world.
This is a major milestone for Vattenfall and would be an important step to become fossil free within one generation.
Vattenfall is firmly committed to the green transition of Northern Europe, investing more than EUR 2 billion in renewable energy between 2017-2018. Therefore, Vattenfall has decided to join the offshore tender ‘Hollandse Kust Zuid’ and sees the project as a significant milestone for both the green transition of the Netherlands and Vattenfall.
“As an energy company with a strong presence in the Dutch market and with a firm view on the developments in the Dutch power market, we are very committed to take a leading role in the green transformation of the Dutch economy. Hollandse Kust Zuid would be an important milestone,” says Magnus Hall, CEO, Vattenfall.
