Hollandse Kust (Noord) Wind Farm

Hollandse Kust Noord is one of the three areas allocated by the Dutch government for the development of wind at sea. The Consortium CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell in the Netherlands and Eneco, have been awarded the tender to build the wind farm subsidy-free.

One million households

The consortium plans to have Hollandse Kust (noord) operational in 2023 with an installed capacity of 759 MW, generating at least 3.3 TWh per year. This is enough renewable power to supply more than one million Dutch households with green electricity. The wind farm will be located 18.5 kilometres off the Dutch coast near the town of Egmond aan Zee.


Offshore wind projects produce intermittent electricity. Balancing these dips and peaks and integrating this electricity into the national energy system, requires new technologies. That is why the offshore wind farm will include the following five technology demonstrations that could be implemented at full-scale in the future:

  • A floating solar park;
  • Short-term battery storage;
  • Turbines that are optimally tuned to the network to minimise the negative ‘wake’-effects that wind turbines have on each other;
  • ‘Green hydrogen’ made by electrolysis as a further storage technique;
  • The combination of these individual measures to ensure a continuous power supply regardless of the wind situation.
