Cancellation Leeghwater offshore wind demonstration project
The Dutch offshore project Leeghwater, intended as a large testing and demonstration area for offshore wind technology, was cancelled this week. The concept of a large offshore testing and demonstration area was developed before the Dutch Government decided to organize yearly 700 MW offshore wind power generation tenders. Plans for the first such tender in Borssele in December of this year are now well on their way. The Borssele plot (and most likely subsequent plots to be tendered) will include a testing area, for which a separate "beauty contest" will be held after the December tender.
