The substantial expansion of offshore wind capacity from 4.5 gigawatts in 2023 to as much as 21 GW in 2030 requires action on many fronts. One way in which TNO is contributing to this is by accurately mapping wind speeds over the North Sea. As two new wind farms, good for almost 5 GW, are planned north of the Wadden Islands, we commissioned a fourth monitoring station this spring. The measurements are of great interest to wind farm designers and operators.

The monitoring station is built on NAM’s L2-FA-1 platform in the northern part of the North Sea, about eighty kilometres north of Texel and sixty kilometres west of the future wind farms ‘Ten noorden van de Waddeneilanden’ (700 MW) and ‘Doordewind’ (4 GW).

We aim to have the data available through this website as soon as possible.
