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 in 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: Noise Mitigation System (NMS)
The Noise Mitigation System offers an innovative solution for the noise produced during offshore pile driving. Reducing this noise is essential for underwater life, especially for porpoises, seals and other marine wildlife. These animals need their sonar system for all their activities from navigation, mating to finding food. Worst case scenario is that, if too much noise is produced, their sonar systems deteriorate, and they will not be able to navigate and find their food.
The Noise Mitigation System is developed by Van Oord, AdBm Technologies and TNO, with support of TKI Wind op Zee and RVO.
