Together with Dutch investment fund APG, SSE Renewables is gearing up for a bid in a series of new offshore wind tenders, the company reports in a press release.

The new consortium has set its sights on four tenders concerning 1GW offshore wind farms within the IJmuiden Ver Zone approximately 62 kilometers off the Dutch coast. These four tenders will have a special focus on ecological protection and integration into the Dutch energy system, according to the press release.

The new joint venture combines SSE Renewables’ experience within construction, development and operation of wind facilities at sea with APG’s investment expertise in the green transition and strong ties in the Netherlands.

APG is an offshoot of ABP, which is the biggest Dutch pension fund and has ample experience with on- and offshore energy development. 

SSE Renewables looks forward to working together with APG, and the feeling is mutual, notes APG. 

”The consortium partners are committed to invest a large amount of capital to support the Dutch energy transition, with particular focus on ecological innovation and integration into the broader energy system,” says Chief Investment Officer of APG Peter Branner.

The application process for the four tenders will open in the fourth quarter of 2023.
