IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone


IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone (IJVWFZ) is located 33.4 nautical miles (62 km) off the west coast of the Netherlands. There will be 4 wind farm sites designated within the IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone: IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Site I, II, III, and IV. The Dutch Government will issue 2 tenders for the permits to develop the sites.

The total surface area of the wind farm sites within the zone (including maintenance and safety zones) is approximately 400 kmĀ². These wind farm sites will accommodate 4 GW of offshore wind capacity. Transmission system operator TenneT will construct 2 offshore platforms with grid connections in the IJVWFZ.


In the first tender, offshore wind farm developers will be able to apply for a permit to develop IJVWFS I and II. This is scheduled to open in 2023. The application period to develop IJWFS III and IV is scheduled to open in 2025.
