Offshore wind energy (Wind op Zee) is essential for a successful energy transition in the Netherlands. To this end, the TKI Wind op Zee (Top consortium for Knowledge and Innovation Offshore Wind) boosts and facilitates offshore wind innovation in collaboration with RVO through research, development and demonstration. Aiming to allow offshore wind energy to make a major contribution to the energy transition. In addition, the Multi-annual Mission-driven Innovation Program (MMIP) focuses on three themes, namely cost reduction and optimization, integration into the energy system and integration into the environment.
Thereby increasing the contribution of the Dutch offshore wind industry to the implementation of offshore wind in the Netherlands and strengthening their competitive position in the international export market. Find out more about the innovation program of the TKI Wind op Zee
Various projects and Joint Industry Projects (JIPs) are taking place within the TKI Wind op Zee program. Look for an overview of unique projects in our project overview.
Project in the Spotlight: Seaqualize
The offshore wind industry is growing fast. It is a relatively new sector of energy production that is characterised by innovations and upscaling: the fields are increasing in size, the turbines are becoming higher, and the technical challenges are greater. Offshore oil and gas drilling has been a mature industry for a long time, but it is a really different branch and offers hardly any technical starting points to build on with offshore wind energy.
Gjalt Lindeboom is managing director of Seaqualize and explains: “To realise the ambitious growth scenarios in the field of offshore wind energy, thousands of (turbine)lifts are needed in a short period of time. This can be achieved by making more cranes suitable and extending the lifting season, both of which have a mutually reinforcing effect.”
