TKI Wind op Zee presented the new report on employment in the Dutch offshore wind industry. The report provides insight into the number of people and the competencies that are required to sucessfully enroll offshore wind in Dutch waters up to 2023. The objective of the report was to provide insights which can be used to develop plans for education and inflow of future employees to the offshore wind sector.
Offshore wind plays an important role in the Dutch energy transition. For the near future the Dutch government has the policy to have five offshore wind farms of circa 700 MW each, realised as from 2019 until 2024. TKI Wind op Zee in cooperation with RVO.nl, has initiated a study to assess the employment development and required competences in the construction and operational phase of offshore wind farms in the coming years. Erik Knol (Qeam) and Erwin Coolen (ECHT) performed the study. The conclusions of the study are presented in the report ‘Employment analysis (2019-2023) of various fields of activities in the Dutch offshore wind sector’.
