Ørsted and Zeeland Seaports have agreed to further develop a specific location in Vlissingen Buitenhaven in the coming months, after which a final contract will be signed. This will happen as soon as both parties reach an agreement on the terms and conditions.
Borssele 1&2 will be one of the largest wind farms in the world (752MW) and requires a good base for maintaining and operating the wind farm. Ørsted has previously developed similar maintenance bases in the UK, Germany and Denmark.
Jasper Vis, Country Manager for Ørsted Netherlands: “We have been welcomed with open arms in Zeeland after winning the tender for Borssele 1&2. We look forward to settling in the province of Zeeland and contributing to further regional economic development and long-term employment.We will obviously enter into a dialogue with companies in the region and our future neighbors to explore the options for cooperation.”
Claus Bøjle Møller, Programme Director for Borssele 1&2 at Ørsted: ”Vlissingen offers an excellent location for our O&M base in terms of onshore and offshore logistics as well as maritime services for the construction and operation of our new wind farm.”
