Dutch startup will build floating solar panel at North Sea wind farm

A Dutch startup has been commissioned to install floating solar panels on an offshore wind farm in the North Sea.

Oceans of Energy won the contract from CrossWind, a joint venture between Shell and Eneco. The renewable energy startup has been commissioned to build a 0.5 MW floating array between wind turbines at the 750 MW Hollands Kust Noord wind farm, 18.5 km off the coast of the Netherlands.

According to the startup, which was founded in 2016 by Dutch engineer and entrepreneur Allard van Hoeken, this would be the first offshore solar farm in the world to be connected, installed and operated within a wind farm in “high wave conditions”.

The solar panels will be placed between the offshore wind turbines and provide backup power on sunny but less windy days. The panels are moored to the wind turbines and connected to the same cables, transporting energy efficiently to end users.

Van Hoeken says the project “will work as an example for combined offshore wind and solar parks in the future.”

Here are four reasons why you shouldn’t miss it

The solar panel will provide energy for approximately 500 households in 2025, two years after the wind farm has been commissioned, if it is connected to the Dutch electricity grid.

Until now, the startup has mainly relied on subsidies from the Dutch government, which it collected 20 million euros so far. However, financial details of the new contract with CrossWind were not disclosed.
