IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone


The IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone (IJVWFZ) is located 33.4 nautical miles (62 km) off the west coast of the Netherlands in the Dutch North Sea. Six sites have been designated in the IJVWFZ: I, II, III, IV, V and VI. The Dutch Government will start two tender procedures for the permits to develop projects in this wind farm zone: Sites I-IV in 2023 and Sites V and VI in 2025.

The total surface area of the sites within the IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone (including the maintenance and safety zones) is approximately 650 km². Approximately 6 GW of new offshore wind capacity will be installed in IJVWFZ, with the power generated supplied to the Dutch electricity grid.


Developers of offshore wind farms can apply for a permit to develop the IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Sites I to IV. The application period for Sites I-IV is scheduled for the 4th quarter of 2023. For the development of Sites V and VI, an application period is planned for 2025.

Site Characterisation

Together with our partners, we are carrying out site investigations in the IJmuiden Ver Wind Farm Zone. A strategy has been developed for offshore wind and water site assessments. This strategy includes the plan for determining the site conditions for the wind farms planned in the Additional Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap. The data and reports of the site investigations are published on offshorewind.rvo.nl and regularly updated.
