Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, offshore wind developments in both Ireland and the Netherlands are taking off/continue as planned. In 2020, the Netherlands installed nearly 1.5GWS of offshore wind on the North Sea, which accounted for 25% of the total installed capacity worldwide in 2020! This makes the Netherlands first in Europe on 2020 installations, and second in the world after China.

Since the birth of the offshore wind industry, Dutch companies have been globally involved in the offshore wind sector and its developments, most visibly through the large Tier 1 contractors but also through strong and innovative Tier 2 & 3 suppliers. Part of this of this involvement finds its origin in the cross-over between other offshore and other marine industries, such as oil and gas.

Dutch companies can be your dedicated partner to collaborate in future offshore wind farm development!

Virtual mission

The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Dublin, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) and Holland Home of Wind Energy (HHWE), together with Irish partners Enterprise Ireland, Wind Energy Ireland and Irish Maritime Development Office will organise a series of events focused on the Irish and Dutch offshore wind sector, consisting of:

  • Webinars (topics, among others: offshore wind developments in Ireland and the Netherlands, bottom-fixed offshore wind, floating wind, and port development);
  • 1-on-1 Digital Matchmaking; and
  • Targeted Sessions where developers and/or Tier 1 companies will be able to present themselves to a group of Dutch/Irish businesses.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions the program will entirely take place online.

Participation costs Irish companies: free of charge.
