Orsted announced that offshore wind farm Borssele 1 & 2 has delivered first power to the Dutch grid. The first wind turbine is now supplying electricity. Borssele 1 & 2 is located 22 kilometres off the coast of the Dutch province of Zeeland at water depths ranging from 14 to 39.7 meters. Construction of Borssele 1 & 2 started in January with the installation of the first foundation. A total of 94 Siemens Gamesa 8 MW wind turbines will be installed at Borssele 1 & 2, making it the largest offshore wind farm in the Netherlands when completed.

Ørsted Netherlands Country Manager Steven Engels said "It's been a long, but satisfactory journey since we started developing the Dutch offshore wind market in 2013. After having won the Borssele 1 & 2 tender in 2016 with an industry breakthrough price of EUR 72.7 per MWh, it's great news that we've reached another major milestone today with the first supply of wind energy to the Netherlands."
